- Portfolio / Photographer carlo Magenis
I was born in Asti on April 16th 1951, moved to the province of Turin in 1971, I started photographing with passion with a Pentax Spotmatic, screw pitch, 49 × 1.
After a few years, I buy my first Nikon and start printing with the fantastic Durst M601. I continue in the years and, the advent of digital, reinforces the passion.
The abandonment of chemistry, the abandonment of the stages of development / printing, lived for decades (even with real pleasure) the arrival of the internet, simplifies (does not improve ...) the approach ..
In May 2013 I enrolled in Fotoincontri in San Felice sul Panaro, I know Masters like Settimio Benedusi, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Giovanni Cozzi, Chico de Luigi, Franco Fontana, Maurizio Galimberti, Giovanni Gastel, Guido Harary, Gabriele Rigon, Ferdinando Scianna, Toni Thorimbert , Oliviero Toscani.
I seem to touch the sky with a finger!
The same year I take part in Toscana Foto Festival and I join the workshops of Gabriele Rigon and Settimio Benedusi.
The following year, 2014 to September, I organize my first Photo Festival in Cambiano (To) (perhaps the improper name) thanks to the collaboration of Renè Olivier Production, of Roberto Rosini and Rosanna Trinchese with the workshops of Gabriele Rigon and Viola Lorenza Savarese.
On Saturday evening, a fantastic speech with Settimio Benedusi.
Speech Settimio Benedusi
A real success, to the point that in the following years, I continue with Masters like Gabriele Rigon, Efrem Raimondi, Antonio Guccione, Monica Cordiviola, Corrado Dalcò, Anna Morosini, Davide Cerati, Paolo Ranzani.
In 2019 the last edition was a real success.
