Fabrizio Giacomelli – Analog noise technique to bring back to life impressionistic photography
Fabrizio’s photographic research and development started in the early 70s. It was during these days that he began his first and only profession and lifetime love: photography.
In 1972 after intense studies, he worked in a photographic laboratory close to Verona, giving him the unique opportunity to learn both the theory and practice of the original photographic world.
The direction of Fabrizio’s research and photographic vision was greatly influenced by the French masters of Impressionism in the 19th and 20th century like Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Edoard Manet and inspired his passion for painting on canvas. Fabrizio endeavored to reproduce the picturesque impressionist painting with his medium of analog film-based photography. Through an innovative use of the variation of sensibility (ISO) and physical flou filters Fabrizio is able to recreate this unique effect.
With 40 years of experience as a professional fashion photographer, Fabrizio has led the artistic direction of hundreds of photo shoots in Italy and South Europe. Throughout his professional journey with CLX he has shot for some of the world’s most important fashion brands including Fendi, Versace, Bottega Veneta, YSL, Ferragamo, Bulgari, and Brunello Cucinelli. After retiring from his professional career, he has reawakened his lifelong passion and resumed the research with analog photography.
His new photographic technique is called “Analog Noise”. It involves the exclusive use of analogue cameras with high sensibility ISO negative colour film combined with his proprietary physical filter fluo effect of variable shades enabling a wide spectrum of chromatic tonality (coloring). This sophisticated photographic technique enables Fabrizio to recreate the Impressionistic effect on photos. All effects are obtained immediately during the shooting with no post editing involved. Digitizing the films allows him to perform HDR optimisation as well as the ability to print the photos on mediums such as Canvas.
On October 12th, 2019 Fabrizio Giacomelli will open the first public exhibition of his works at Venice Biennale (VIU) called ‘Peace & Harmony’ in collaboration with Dr. Dominc Man-Kit Lam, a world-renowned scientist, artist and philanthropy.
