Originally from Italy, Paolo begins to develop his passion for photography while traveling through different countries in his early twenties. Since the beginning fascinated by the opportunity to capture elements of different cultures or moments of unusual beauty hidden in everyday life, he later moves to a more personal and intimate reading of reality. With that approach he starts 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, Canada, where he currently lives, Paolo attended several photography classes in Mexico City and New York City. He now continues to develop his style, shooting freelance in North America and focusing mostly on conceptual photography, urban photography, environmental portraiture, and still life.
His current work explores the relationships human beings form with their environments, and the usage of panning techniques and long exposure to capture time, motion and urban feelings.
“Paolo Rubini’s natural composition and use of dramatic black and white enhance 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 -
