Ferdinando Riccio
Photographer

Ferdinando Riccio is an Italian photographer born in 1986, currently living in Barcelona (Spain), specialized in analog photography.

His shots evoke the photography that has characterized the post-war photographic reportages before the digital era with a modern and often ironic vision of the world that currently surrounds us.

He took his first steps in photography at a young age creating several photographic reportages and collaborating for different newspapers in his hometown, Naples.

In 2010 he moved to Germany and lived there for 6 years where he published his first book: “Attraverso Romania” (Through Romania) a journey across the country from one end to the other.

On 2016 Ferdinando moved to Barcelona, a city where he published his second book: “Cuba 2015,” a personal tribute from the author to the Cuban community. He has since participate in several international photographic exhibitions.

All his years of travelling and meeting experienced people in the field helped him gain the professionalism and trueness we can find in his fine art.
