Maurizio Fiorino shoots.
His father, giving him a camera, said: “use it like a gun”. And so, the young Italian photographer, letting behind him never-ended universities and the suffocating Italian provincialism, shoots in all New York. His portraits are clean, without any filters, sensual: his “boys of life” are guys that we could meet everywhere, but they’re dangerously handsome. They’re also and above all auto-portraits. Seems like merciless mirrors, acting on the ubiquitous background of an urban and crazy metropolis like New York. Colours are saturated ands noisy: a little bit of “Godard yellow” knocked down on a Pasolini’s “ragazzo di vita”, trough echoes of an American underground a-là-Terry Richardson.
