Luciano Duse

Artist's Statement

"Once I choose a subject to photograph, I commit myself to go beyond simply recording an image...I want to reflect its soul. The brilliance and saturation of the colors in my photographs are the result of choosing the subject in the most ideal light. The type of film, lens choice, exposure and composition are absolutely critical. Ultimately and without any computer enhancement or adulteration, the beauty and essence of my subject is captured on film...the soul is seen. I was born and raised in Venice, Italy and my interest in photography started when I was a teenager. Now, 40 years later, the European scene and its magnificence has again peaked my creative interest. I have completed photographic expeditions to the Czech Republic, Portugal, France and Italy, as well as Cuba, Mexico, Morocco and England. Additional expeditions to other countries are now being planned. Endless hours waiting for the right conditions and an undeniable quest to capture the perfect image continue to be my hallmark. My photography, often times thought to be painting, will be my legacy." "I use a medium format Hasselblad camera and lenses from 30mm to 280mm. I use Kodak and Agfa negative film. I print on Fuji archival paper for a lasting finish. The limited edition photographs are mounted and matted with acid free materials."
