Alessandro Gori explores emotions in portraiture
"Alessandro Gori, born in Rome in 1978, I grew up in Brussels then moved with my family to NYC. I also lived in Basel, Tel Aviv and Spain. I started taking pictures in 1988 when I was 10 with a Vivitar that I still own. I recently produced a movie that’s available on Amazon Prime, I’ve been in politics, business and I am together curios and idle."
About the set:
In a strangely warm February night my friend Chiara, young theatre actress, exhausted by her work day found some time to decompress in red and blue.

"I started taking pictures when my father bought me a Vivitar. Back then we lived in Brussels, I was 11, and my main interests were forests and rivers, we were literally surrounded. After some years we moved to NYC and I soon realized that people were much more interesting than nature, because of the emotions they can transmit.
Emotions and moods are the main themes I try to explore, may be because the source of my inspiration are renaissance paintings and classical sculpture."
