Landscapes by Thomas de Franzoni

“My name is Thomas de Franzoni, I am an Italian fine art photographer based in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy. I approached photography thanks to my passion for nature and wild animals. After a period dedicated to nature photography, thanks also to my passion for travel, I became more and more interested in landscape photography. I love mainly the landscapes of the Dolomites, the mountain lakes framed by autumn colors, the sinuous hills of Tuscany, the woodlands covered by fog and the picturesque churches of Slovenia. …”

« Prendre quelqu’un en photo, c’est toujours sexy ! »

David Bailey a révolutionné l’art du portrait et de la photographie de mode dans les années 1960. Aussi célèbre que ceux qui posaient pour lui, l’étoile du Swinging London brille désormais parmi les grands photographes composant la collection d’albums de Reporters sans frontières.

Le portfolio de l’album RSF déroule la carrière d’un photographe qui débute comme assistant dans l’atelier d’un photographe de mode, au début des années 1960, avant d’être catapulté à la Une du prestigieux Vogue. Des premiers shootings de mannequins aux portraits des éminences de la pop culture, avec plus de quarante livres à son actif, le maître éblouissant du noir et blanc nous offre de (re)découvrir les photos de légende qui ont émaillé soixante ans de carrière.
