Born in the north of Italy, Adriano was raised and educated in England. His interest in photography was crystallised early on, playing with his father's Voigtländer Vitessa, and it has remained a hobby ever since. At school his studies steered him away from the arts towards the sciences. Now, after a long career in medical research, his focus 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, Jonathan Chritchley and Hengki Koentjoro, as well as the mentorship of Martin Edge for underwater studies.
