    Andrea Frapporti

Norwegian fjords are of an outstanding beauty. Steep mountains raise from these narrow strips of the North Atlantic, their deep blue hues melting perfectly with the whiteness of winter. It feels like fjords, from their inland tips, are there to gradually accompany you from the familiar environment of the mainland out to the open ocean. Never have I seen such a gloriously perfect bond between mountains and the sea.

was born in Verona, Italy, in 1988. I spent the first 23 years of my life between Verona and Padova, where I graduated in molecular biology and genetics, before moving to Paris and then to Cambridge, UK to complete my academic training and become a scientist.

I have always considered myself as a citizen of the world. A world I incessantly seek to visit, photograph and contemplate whenever I have the opportunity to travel.

Though I have been fascinated by photography since childhood, I only started to to get seriously interested few years back, when I bought my first reflex and started to look at the world through the viewfinder. It is only since quite recently that I started to develop and experiment my own style and vision in landscape and cityscape photography. It is a never-ending process, one at which I am very new yet extremely enthusiastic.
