Italian photographer and artist Augusto De Luca originally graduated in law becoming a professional photographer in the mid-1970s, walking the line between traditional and experimental photography.
“I feel like a sailor, or better, like an explorer of the immense universe of art. The artist is an explorer in search of the keys that open the door to emotions and feelings. Art is the place where rationality, fantasy, truth and fiction come together in an explosive mixture.
I possess multiple souls that come out month by month, year by year. I am a photographer, a performer, a lawyer, a collector, a musician. I am all that; I do not throw anything away, I just allow my diverse souls to take turns. If you take pictures for the sake of others, your true essence will never come out, you will end up doing things others have already done, just because you know that people like them. My photographs convey my ideas, my passions, who I am and what is on my mind.”
