Born in the north of Italy, Adriano was raised and educated in England. His interest in photography was crystallised in childhood, playing with his father's Voigtländer Vitessa, and it has remained a hobby ever since. But at school his studies steered him away from the arts towards the sciences. Now, after a long career in medical research, his attention has turned full time to photography.
Based in North West England, his interests are in Landscape and Underwater subjects, making photographs predominantly, but not exclusively in monochrome. His work is influenced strongly by renowned contemporary photographers such as Michael Kenna, Hengki Koentjoro and Paul Sanders, as well as Jonathan Chritchley, who, together with Martin Edge, are his mentors for landscape and underwater studies respectively.
