“I want to give importance to time. I am stopping time using an image. I am responsible for that moment there. I try to return the best I have seen and experienced, working with the soul and the body.”

Donato Del Giudice

Using a large format camera, Donato Del Giudice creates personal portraits and urban views in the Düsseldorfer Schule tradition.

The photographer initially studied art at the Academia delle Belle Arti di Brera; subsequently he studied at the International Center of Photography in New York, where he studied with Alan Frame, Gerard Vezzuso and Amy Arbus, and came in contact with Alec Soth.

In Donato Del Giudice’s analog work, US American and Italian sensibilities are applied to the Middle European photographic view. The artist arrives at an understated vision of his generation and their urban surroundings, but introduces to this sober way of photographing an Italian poetic sense.
