There is a photographer on his site which not many of you know, Gino di Meglio.

His style is delicate, and reminds me of the soft approach of Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) on portraiture. Dreamy eyes telling a story, evoking melancholy in my soul, were impermanence was so obvious written on her sitter faces. Although at the time colour pictures were impossible to achieve, Julia had managed to introduce a touch of sepia. Another plus, ever so difficult to play with at that time, was different levels of focus, which she had mastered it, without to be recognised at the time as a great artist. Similarities in between the two are growing even stronger in my opinion, and worth viewing, although Gino strongly keeps the classic B&W in different shades, from soft to strong greys. Another similarity is solitude, just look at the two artist with critical eyes, and you will observe those effects.

I hope you will enjoy his work, as much as I do!

Love to all of you,
