'Creating Making'

Giovanni Bortolani

The passion for photography has kept him busy since he was a child. Since ever he is cultivating a personal research.

Coming from an artistic training, he grew professionally among various disciplines, from illustration to graphic arts, from photography to video.  From the hand made things to those made in the "washing machine" (the computer). Attracted by what's new, he keeps on experimenting but without giving up the darkroom.

After ten years of experience as art director in the best publishing agencies, he is now a full time photographer.

'CreandoFacendo', CreatingMaking, is his motto.
