Maurizio Bavutti is a full-time Italian photographer based in Bologna, Italy. Maurizio’s interest in photography began during his film studies in Spain. Since then he has worked with analogue photography, in color and black and white, developing a romantic and nostalgic vision of a contemporary world suspended between dream and reality. His research, through portraits and landscapes, wants to deepen the relationship between human and earth, inseparable from the emotional awareness of the spirit. After finishing his studies in media, which he attended between Italy, Spain and England, he moved to London in 2006 where he took a postgraduate course in photography at the University of the Arts UAL. Following five years of training as a photo assistant for several internationally renowned artists Maurizio begins his career. In 2013 he moved from London to New York City where he lived and worked for a few years, growing a strong interest in to “straight photography” movement , originally founded by the pioneers of the early 20th century American photography like Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand and Ansel Adams. Recently Maurizio returns to Italy to deepen his photographic studies and research on his home land. His works have been exhibited at Triennale Milano, Armani Silos Art Foundation, Paratissima Torino and ArtCity Bologna.
