Bio

Following his education in classic subjects and economics, Luca Rotondo devoted himself to photography and in 2013 he launched his career with his first publication “Landscape Assumptions”, curated by art critique and photography historian Angela Madesani. Luca Rotondo’s research focuses primarily on the investigation of landscape, widely intended as a new idea of human or inner landscape, with special attention to the human aspect and it’s spatial relations. He then begins a series of in-depth projects, the theme being portraits of individuals depicted as an architectural presence and the relationship with their surroundings. Each person is therefore in a constant dialogue with his surrounding living space. He continues to work on editorial assignments and has been published in IoDonna, Corriere della Sera, D Repubblica, D-lui, Icon Design, Domus, Interni magazine, Living, Panorama, The Next Building, Planum. Over time he has also collaborated with numerous architects, designers, businesses and media agencies. His “Metropolitan Lullabies” project won him the 12th edition Ponchielli award. Since 2016, he has been teaching landscape photography at IED (European Institute of Design) in Milan. He has participated in several collective exhibitions and some of his art is now part of the Bracco Foundation’s collection.
