Stefano Carloni, from “Shadows in Motions” series
Black and White Magazine is out with its 2010 Portfolio Contest Awards. There are dozens of winners but just a few receive the Excellence Award. Of those “elite” we are being brazen and choosing an overall winner … Stefano Carloni of Italy.
In 1997 he began nurturing his passion for photography: major authors’ exhibitions and books, technical magazines, handbooks and constant practice are the tools he uses to learn photography’s techniques and composition by using both colour and b/w. Several pictures of his – portraits, reportage and landscapes – were published between 2001 and 2003 by the Italian magazine "Progresso Fotografico".
His conveyance of drama in motion is very impressive with the details of shadow and light working to re-enforce the sense of movement in his subjects.
