Michele De Punzio
Michele De Punzio (1986) is an Italian photographer.
He studies cinema at the First University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’.
The transition from film to photography is spontaneous:
the images projected during the module on "Analysis of the film" hypnotize him,
the shadows of German expressionism move him while revealing the potential behind the use of light,
and cinema close-ups lead him to portrait photography - a genre that he prefers.
In 2010 he graduates in photography.
In 2012 he produces America's Fun, a series portraying Italian people with a passion for American culture.
Simultaneously he uses images to represent his mood (My motionless havoc, Veins),
and always using photography is able to tell the stories of the places and the lives of people that inhabit it (City of Glass).
As a portrait photographer working with actors.
In 2014 he starts teaching photography to young people in high schools.
He currently lives and works in Rome, where he continues his photographic research while carrying out different projects.
