Entry Description

Pinhole Photography - Camera: Zero 2000 6x6 - Film: Fuji Velvia 50 - Exposure: from 20 to 90 seconds - Place: Noli (SV) – Italy - The sea in winter has something magical. There are no noises, no longer hear the constant hum of crowds on the beaches. The silence is broken only by the lapping of the waves and the whistling of the wind. The space resumed its immensity. The only thing that reminds us of the presence of man, are the structures that has built up and that already seem to be abandoned, forgotten...

About Photographer

Aurelio Bormioli was born in Savona in 1969. Since he was a child, he was interested in photography thanks to his father who  was an amateur photographer. As years went by, he attended workshops with  many famous sector experts, such as Ivano Bolondi, Enrico Stefanelli, Pino Ninfa, and Ernesto Bazan. Nowadays, he works with a professional Nikon  equipment, although he usually uses films as well, especially  pinhole cameras, that are strongly admired by Aurelio.
