Domenico Foschi - Returning Artist
"Domenico Foschi was born in Bari, Italy, in 1962.
Although always exploring different kinds of creative media since childhood, he found that photography would be what he would stick with for many years to come, after stealing his brother's camera for a short trip . He was nineteen at the time.
Not being able to afford a formal education in photography, he started to study the work of the masters in books.
He found the expressive power of the work of Alvin Langdon Coburn , Kertesz, Steichen, Stieglitz, Strand, Sander, Penn Avedon, and a few others, of pivotal importance to his direction as a Fine Art photographer.
Working in the Sergio Guidetti Studio Fotografico, he received “hands on“ training on the use of large format cameras, to developing and printing techniques.
He then worked as a freelance commercial photographer in Ravenna, his home-town, shooting for magazines, newspapers, the City Administration and Political parties.
Soon he realized that commercial photography wasn't going to allow him to explore his creativity in a more personal way.
D, F. moved in the U. S. in 1989.
Here he has produced many different portfolios ranging from portraits, to Urban Landscapes, to Still Life, to Italian landscapes etc.. His commercial work took a direction on his own, mainly by producing CD covers for recording artists and commissioned Fine Art Black and White Portraiture.
D. F. has received awards for his images, and his work has been published on View Camera Magazine, B/W Magazine, Silvershotz Magazine, Blow Magazine, Looking Glass Magazine and other publications.
His work has been shown at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and in Galleries in Spain, Italy and the US and in 2009 he was a grant recipient by the HARC foundation."
