Originally from Italy, Paolo began to develop his passion for photography while traveling through different countries in his early twenties. He was fascinated by the opportunity to capture elements of different cultures or moments of unusual beauty hidden in everyday life, and later moved to a more personal and intimate reading of reality. With that approach, he started exploring the possibility of composing images with a deeper conceptual impact, reflecting his own emotional landscapes and his visual art influences more clearly.  




Before moving to Vancouver, Paolo attended several photography classes in Mexico City and New York City. He continues to develop his style, shooting freelance in North America and focusing mostly on still life, environmental portraiture, conceptual, and urban photography.


Paolo Rubini’s natural composition and use of dramatic black and white enhances his way of seeing things. There is so much going on in many of his images, it takes a connoisseur to drink it all in.
— Allan de la Plante



His current work explores the relationships human beings form with their environments, and the usage of the panning techniques and long exposure to capture time, motion and urban feelings.
