Nicola Bertellotti lives in Pietrasanta, Italy, and travels the world trying to rediscover the past glory of forgotten places. What emerges in his aesthetic is the nostalgia for a lost paradise, expressed in the love for ruins, and the photographic re-presentation of decadent poetics. He has exhibited in various contemporary art galleries and museums.
Edward Burtynsky. There is something incredibly beautiful and breathtaking in the vastness of his perspectives. As long as human needs and desires change, the landscape will also change and no one like him can tell you about that change.
Best tip for other photographers:
Find a photographic subject that they really love and dedicate a lot of time to it until they get obsessed. In my case, it is the subject, abandoned places, that made me a photographer.
My favourite photograph:
This is an abandoned Italian villa, lost in the countryside (image below). The wonderful frescoes, the light that filters through the door and the reflection on the floor make it one of my favourites.
