Umberto Stefanelli, Italian photographer, developed his artistic skills in New York, where he lived for several years and where he began to express his creativity, with his very own personal style of photography, re-elaborating his images using innovative techniques.
Following on from his experience in the USA, he discovered new horizons in Japan, with its colors and light, which conditioned a further transformation in his photographic art, closely tied to the magical instant developing of Polaroid film.
He collaborated to several artistic projects with: POLAROID, LEVI’S STRAUSS, L’OREAL, NOKIA, EPSON, GREY GROUP, YOUNG & RUBICAM, NIPPON TELEVISION, and ZOOM MAGAZINE.
A selection of his work is included in the Polaroid Collection U.S.A., in the Brescia National Museum of Photography, in the CIFA – Italian Center of Author Photography, in the Civic Gallery of Modena, in the Lishui Museum of Photography, in the Shanghai Duolun Museum Of Modern Art and in other public and private collections.
