Daniele Pezzoli, Bologna (IT)
After arts' studies, mentored by eminent artists, such as Piero Manai and Maurizio Montanari, Daniele stepped into photography as press photographer, following Formula1, MotoGP, and international Rally races, that he carried on for more than 10 years.
After a short pause, he backed into photography in fashion and commercials' field, with some of his works published on MarieClaire, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and others used in the Pavarotti International festival.
He worked for 4 years for Playboy Italia and CafèRacer France.
Beside his job, Daniele has always used photography as an art form, melting it with different visual techniques, with a physical approach to the print itself, and experimenting various types of materials and their manipulation. Inspired by artists like Nino Migliori, Maurizio Galimberti and Marai himself, since the beginning (back in the 70s'), he started using instant films, and RankXerox copy-machines, with an innovative approach to photography for the time.
Daniele was particularly attracted by Polaroid films, that he used in a way between photography and painting, with creations not that far from dadaism or even impressionism.. and they were even instantaneus!
So, at the sad news of the Polaroid plants' closure, in 2008, Daniele founded Polaroid Art Italy, the first Italian social group of instant photographers, which he lead and coordinated till 2014, organising nuomerous meetings, exhibitions, and always trying to disseminate his very first passion:instant photography.
