Meet Christian Tagliavini

Christian Tagliavini is born in 1971 and of Swiss and Italian heritage. Here is in his own words, how he thinks about photography and art: "I have lived and studied in Italy and Switzerland in the 80s. Technical education, creative evolution self-taught. Then, the crossroads: on one side, graphics. On the other side, photography. I start with the idea, then I search someone to impersonate it. I build up stories and dramatize them using photography and creativity as a skillful artifice being at the same time author, stage designer, costume designer, casting manager, director - and photographer. I draw inspiration from other photographers and artists: Luigi Ghirri is to me the greatest Italian photographer. His misty landscapes pierced with the winter light remind me of the places where I grew up. Erwin Olaf, creative, elegant, ironic: I consider him a flawless model of technique and style, a true perfectionist of the artificial image."
