Dario Rigoni - Biografy

Dario Rigoni has been passionate about photography since he was a child, but only after many years has he decided to present his work to the general public.

He has always considered professional photography as an act which should not be revealed, which should be protected in a near obsessive way.

The intimate nature of the sea, of people, of the act of taking photographs, encourage him to seek out magical and mysterious places, which he portrays through an emotional, dreamlike perspective.

His photographs are real works of art, resulting from much research and study about his favourite topics.

Images with a spiritual essence, connected to nature and its forces which merge together with the hard work of one man, as well as his poetic words.

In 2008 Dario published three important books about the sea and its people. These books contributed to his being known by the general public as “poet of the sea”, and lead to the prestigious acknowledgement by the President of the French Republic Nicolas Sarkozy.

He has exhibited in Riomaggiore, Portovenere and Lerici and his photographs have been published in Domus magazine as well as within the context of many cultural events, both national and international, receiving great approval by critics.
