About Paolo Iommelli
Paolo Iommelli lives in Aversa, where he was born in 1965. Attentive to experimentation and expressive possibilities of the photographic language, in the eighties began his career as a professional photographer. After graduation, he attended the lectures of the photographer Mimmo Jodice at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples. He later graduated from the University Federico II in Philosophy, with a thesis on "Myths and Symbols", and specializes in Visual Anthropology and a Masters in social photography. He is dedicated to a series of trials on photographic materials and the possibilities of photography, not as a merely descriptive, but as a creative tool. the philosophical background artist works with photography for years, paying peripheral vision to the daily and ordinary things and the human figure to bring into existence that which is struggling to appear, the unspoken, the neglected, the non-functional and denied. It has a particular interest in the historical and contemporary architecture, preferring the myths of classical antiquity and the Mediterranean.
