DAVID

DAVID BASTIANONI, A STORYTELLER THROUGH IMAGES

PHOTOGRAPHERS IN FLORENCE SINCE 1932

AESTETHICS OF BEAUTY

THE ELEGANCE OF SHAPE AND LIGHT

David is an Italian luxury wedding photographer but it would be better to call him storyteller.
Born in Florence (Tuscany, Italy) to a family of photographers. He learned by experience, next to his uncle and his father, how to narrate real feelings through images.

The strong photographer origin of his family (since 1932), made David ask himself important questions during adult age, questioning about the gap between working as a photographer and being a photographer, challenging himself and questioning his abilities every time.

Today, thanks to this attitude he understands reality of things and he is aware of being completely seduced by his job, namely his greatest passion: photography.

His endless research of the Aesthetics of beauty allowed him to fine-tune a well-defined, yet constantly evolving style, based on elegance of shape and light, an interaction distinguishing all his shots.

His work earned publications on prestigious magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar; one of his shots was chosen for Brides‘s cover on the “Wedding of the Year” special.

A CONTINUOUS ARTISTIC RESEARCH

FRAGMENTS OF HISTORY

PERSPECTIVE OF THE RENAISSANCE

His Tuscan origins influence his education rooted in the study of linear perspective of Renaissance. His artistic researches have always been based on the knowledge of great masters as reflections starting point on his personal experience, which he transforms into a picture able to engrave a fragment of history in the flowing of times.

He travelled a lot to define his photography, shooting all over Europe, in New York and Las Vegas in the United States, in Africa, in Sharm el Sheikh and in Lebanon.

Being able to travel and shoot different cultures makes him, as he loves to define himself, a privileged observer; an aesthete able to step into the lives of his newlyweds for one day and add his signature to the story of an unknown person.
