About

   Francesco Lantino was born in 1960 in Acate (Italy), where he lives and teaches, but he often travels around the world to take photos.
He began taking photos in 1974. Observing and studying the great masters of photography, he has developed a personal way to see, imagine and represent the reality.
In taking photos he prefers to search for some expressive moments drawn from everyday reality derived from human nature with the presence of the wonderful way that each person has. He also produces pictures of urban and extra-urban landscapes with a balanced representation of architectures and open spaces.
He has partecipated in different workshops, meetings and seminars with some of the great masters of photography, including Magnum Photos photographers Ferdinando Scianna, Mark Power and Martin Parr, Annie Leibovitz, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Mario Cresci, Nino Migliori, Francesco Radino, Enzo Carli.
He has collaborated with several photographic associations by conducting meetings about Street Photography and History and Theory of Photography.
