The sky is the limit when it comes to opportunities for an up and coming photographer. After exploring a world of possibilities including a 12-month documentation of child labor in Latin America, recording the lives of Kenyans in an exhibition called “People From The True Continent”, Italian Photographer Michele Agostinis‘s native land of Venice presents a wealth of subject matter which never ceases to thrill him, and continues to manifest into many versatile forms of inspiration to capture the moment behind the lens.
From the serenity of a lagoon at dusk to the excitement and atmosphere of a Carnival, Michele never gets tired of photographing his beautiful homeland. Born and raised on the Venice island, Michele Agostinis currently divides his time between Venice and Vienna. He is an aspiring Photojournalist and Events Photographer as well as an active operator for photography workshops primarily in Italy and Austria. He is multilingual and speaks several languages including Italian, English, German and Spanish. Recently, he’s been working for the prestigious Venetian Newspaper Il Gazzettino as well as projects for Netflix and Tate Gallery, contributing photographs to many international publications including Ansa, Lapresse, Kurrier and the 55 Venice Biennale catalogue.
I find capturing the moment before me exhilarating. Documenting the detail, recording the mood and finding meaning in the scene before me are central to my photographic technique.
