Paolo Patrizi | on Tumblr (Italy/Japan) - Starlings

"Across the spectrum of Patriziʼs work, we see an approach to visual storytelling that is marked by an intellectual and artistic vigor, at the heart of which is a compassion and feeling for the people and cultures he reveals in his vibrant essays", says Wayne Ford. Paolo Patrizi is a documentary photographer, whose recent stories explore the underlying themes and contradictions between traditions and modernity and cultural disconnections produced from rapid economic growth. Paolo’s subjects range from portraiture and feature projects to social issues and politics. His focus is always on the human and social aspects of a story.

He began his career in London working as an assistant to other professionals. While doing some freelance assignments for British magazines and design groups, he started to develop individual projects of his own. Today, his work is featured in leading publications and exhibited internationally.

Inspiration is in the air and, at the same time, it is a complex work. It always comes from a form that strikes me. A kind of filter process in which old masters paintings, TV news, highways and supermarkets fuse to create a new entity…

I enjoy working with what I call “anti-matter” - not marble or clay, but meat, vegetables and wood. They are alive, fragile and as ephemeral as we are. Anyway, I’m no longer hungry after carving…
