Roberto Tondi is a photographer who focuses on the search for new visual languages.
A teacher of photography on training courses for cinema, television, new media, digital photography and multimedia platforms, during his 27 years of professional experience he has worked with Model Studio, Antonio Tarantino, Think Puglia, Marten, A&C Group, Talenti Nascenti, A100 Gallery, Azienda Speciale CCIAA, C.E.A. Centro di Educazione Ambientale and Pubblivela among others. He has participated in the staging of fashion shows and advertising campaigns, and the production of art catalogues and photographic collections.
Since 1986 he has worked on exhibitions and reportage around the world. It was in Israel that he had his first experience in the field of new visual languages, followed by work in New York, Tokyo, Madrid and Amsterdam.
Two of his most representative exhibitions were Stone Painting and People.
Born on the 6th of August 1964, Roberto Tondi studied History of Photography and History of Art.
The history of photography and the great photographers has influenced every aspect of his work, which has found particular inspiration in Cartier-Bresson, Klein, Capa, Herwit, Scianna, De Chirico, Boccioni and Balla.
The aim of his photography is to draw society in all its variety, describing a place with an image, in an attempt to grasp its most characteristic features, seeking to represent places by means of faces, personalities and situations, in order to tell their story – via people’s expressions and various other means.
While conserving spontaneity, Roberto Tondi’s photography develops in parallel with an awareness of life which has led him to seek the aesthetic perfection of a photograph in the symmetry of the image, in the search for depth in a level of photography that can contextualise the subject.
