Interview: Carlo di Giacomo
Luca Curci talks with Carlo di Giacomo during VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2021 – 14TH EDITION, at The ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Carlo di Giacomo is a fine art photographer. He was born in Rome in 1967. He is well known for is works that explore the most intimate nature of things with a personal vision and unique idea of them that distinguishes him. To express his art, he uses digital, analogue and Polaroid equipment. It mainly deals with the micro and macro, landscape, people and urban landscape; reintroducing the themes in an exclusive way. His favorite technique is blur and often makes use of colour. He has studied in Rome at the Rossellini Institute of cinematography and television, where he graduated with a specialization in photography.

Luca Curci – What are you currently working on?
Carlo di Giacomo –
I am currently carrying out the Inner Landscapes photographic series, also exhibited at your gallery in Venice, because I am very attracted by the vibration of colors, which, through the use of “blur”, I believe I can adequately interpret and bring to the observer the message. In addition, I am opening my new atelier in Rome, in the EUR district, which, thanks also to the opening of “Roma Arte In Nuvola”, is becoming an area of considerable artistic importance.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most? 
CDG –
I started expressing myself through photography very early on. This passion then led me to study photography and cinema at the Rossellini cine-tv institute in Rome, after which I was lucky enough to study and work alongside three great masters of world photography, like Franco Fontana, Larry Fink and Joan Fontcuberta, who have certainly influenced my path, each in a different way.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
CDG –
I draw my inspiration from everything that surrounds me, I get excited even with the little things and this leads me to reflections and emotions which I then turn into photography. For this reason, I can say that photography is a pretext.

LC – What is your creative process like? 
CDG –
My creative process is born simply by going out with my camera, so rarely in the studio. I like to consider myself a sort of seeker, and a bit a flaner, even if sometimes this word is used with a negative meaning.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
CDG –
The most challenging part is not related to the creative aspect, rather to the final selection of the images, which for me is one of the most difficult things

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works? 
CDG –
The works presented are part of a research born in 2019/2020, while the first closures due to the coronavirus began, I was traveling on an itinerant trip to Yucatan, and it is precisely at that moment that it began to take shape and it is still in progress.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme? 
CDG –
The dialogue with other artists, with other visions and other arts, in my opinion, already represents a common ground that does not necessarily have to be linked to a theme to be treated.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform? And do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
CDG –
I think that ITSLIQUID platform is very interesting and it offers wide possibilities, both for established and emerging artists, as well as, being graphically and aesthetically flawless.
