DNA sat down for a chat with Luca Boschi, the Italian photographer behind The Light Architect, to discuss his art and his photography.
Luca is known for his experimentation with his photography technique. Picking up his camera at 25, he has used friends and models as his subjects, capturing them in high-end fashions and urban streetscapes.
From his home in Teramo, Italy, Luca has been building a name for himself as a strong fashion and artistic photographer.
DNA: Tell us about your photographic style?
I publish my photos over social media as collections as a sort of art installation, in a similar way fashion houses like D&G, Calvin Klein and Armani do.
My style picks up on dark themes with an experimental method I’ve called “Shadoweaving”, in which I weave the shadows out of the light on the set. This style embraces the people I’m shooting, drawing them out of the dark with the light dressing their body.
What type of shoots do you do?
I shoot fashion models, fitness models, fashion brands, underwear and even art galleries.
What sets you apart from other artists and photographers?
I am manic on detail! I play close attention to the detail in each shoot and this carries over into processing in Photoshop where I bring out my technique.
What drives you?
First of all, the extreme interest I have in experimental and unconventional photography. People have responded really well to my work, so I created an Instagram account to showcase it to a wider audience.
