Emiliano Biondelli

Born in Ravenna on the 9th of June 1976 and graduated in History of Contemporary Art in 2003.
He’s actually working with Valentina Venturi on blisterZine (self-publishing house) and NASTYNASTY© (artistic project on grammar of photography with Valentina Venturi). He usually investigates people living in “non-lieux” and their hobbies.
Photography, Video and Photobooks, are the main areas in which he experiments and develps his project, trying also to investigate on photography’s grammar.
