Stefano Brunesci

First inspired by the classic B&W portraits of Hollywood greats such as Rita Hayworth, Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe, Stefano Brunesci first began photographing women in the 1970s. After a short foray into travel photography in his late teens, Stefano returned to his first passions, Art and Fashion, in 2007.

Although a convert to digital and a strong supporter of its benefits, Stefano prefers to keep his use of photoshop to a minimum and often publishes entirely unretouched work in the belief that passion and connection with the subject is the most important aspect of any photograph. As he says: “When you photograph a person you’re capturing a moment in their life… You can’t fake that with any software.”
