salvo veneziano Artist Bio:
Journalist for specialized photo magazines and professional photographer since 80s, in last years i am mainly teaching photography at "Palermofoto" and going ahead with my artistic research. I use both digital and silver photography and i am experimenting a lot with some old printing techniques like cyanotype on glass plate and bichromate gum printing. I often use plastic toy cameras like Diana or Holga to achieve directly on the film the atmosphere and the effect i am looking for (i.e. Kinesphera and 900B series). In the half of 90s i started a research on the female nude, i worked in B&W and i used a torch to paint the bodies in the darkness. About 15 years later i started to print that works (still in progress) on glass giving them color through the blue of cyanotype. The glass plates of the "Blue nudes" serie are each one an unique piece, in each one the imperfections of the emulsion painting confuse itself with the painting of the light on the bodies.
