Sergio is a mainly self thought photographer and while his work includes landscapes and other conventional subjects, he often indulges in studio still life where he can play with light and color to give a new depth, vibrance and texture to his compositions. He uses post processing techniques to fine tune the images and obtain that particular mood that characterizes his photos.
Recently he has been exploring the “light painting” technique in which a photo is taken in total darkness and a dim flashlight is used to reveal the subject. In this was he obtains a chiaroscuro painterly effect and a deep texture which adds to the tridimensional perspective of his photos.
He also uses the Intentional Camera Movement technique that allows him to create a dreaming impressionist effect.
His work has been displayed in various Galleries among which the Spectrum in Essex (CT), the Salmagundi Art Club in NYC, and the100Main Gallery in Falls Village.
He won numerous awards for his work. In particular the award of excellence at the Kent Art Association, the President’s Award for photography at the 40th Annual Open Exhibition at the Salmagundi Art Club, and numerous honorable mentions. His work was among the finalists at the International Garden Photographer of the year 2021 and Nominee in still life competition at the International Color Awards of the year 2021 and 2022.
