Silver / 2012 / Fine Art / Collage
Riccardo Magherini began doing fine art photography in 2011, after a trip to Tokyo. The numerous photographs he took became the basis for his first fine art photo series, “Tokyo”.
Magherini is fascinated by the way time overlaps in the same place and his final images are a collage of different moments all shot in the same place from the same angle and presented in multiple layers to give a frenetic but painterly quality.
He has since created several series using this technique. Firenze, Electric Sheep and most recently New York and Hong Kong. Often choosing locations with dense human traffic his images are compositions of space and time.
In a short space of time he has collected some recognition from international contests such as the International Photography Awards, International Aperture Awards, Prix de la Photographie Paris, and the London International Creative Competition.
