Add To Cart

Alessandro Tomassetti is a Canadian painter and photographer based in Barcelona. He became fascinated with analogue and instant photography upon purchasing his first vintage Land Camera in the late 80’s. Today he employs a full arsenal of discarded technology to create bold, sensual photo series featuring the same models he casts in his oil paintings. Using mostly expired instant film, Tomassetti embraces the instability and unpredictability of his medium to create work which feels singular and immediate, because it is. Like his painted portraits, his photos highlight the sensuality and vulnerability of his male subjects. Seeing the two creative disciplines as synergistic, he uses the photography to inform the mood of his paintings and vice versa.
