Francesco Radino

Publishing Mutazioni, in 1994, I declared for the first time, both with images and with words, that my path was developed by estimates and that these require constant change.
The skin, of course, changed but not the look, with its roots, always strained in the search for that wind (Anemos) that animates everything. During the work on the hydroelectric power plants, in 1984, I was struck by the enormous hard-working machinery, and with them I went into immediate resonance.
They were vibrating and sensual bodies, with whom to exchange long intense and knowing looks filled with wonder, enchantment and gratitude.
Fifteen years later, in 1999, during my intense stay in the province of Shimane (Japan), I began a new path marked by the need to bring to life the images together with the concepts of entropy and participation, elements that are able to mitigate the hardships of the human condition and accommodate the flow of time.
No more an outside observer, but an infinitesimal part of the whole, witness of the changes, of themselves and the world, through the experience of places.
Francesco Radino

Francesco Radino was born in a family of painters in Bagno a Ripoli (Florence) in 1947.
After studying Sociology, he became a professional photographer in 1970 and chose to work in a range of fields, which encompassed industrial photography, design, architecture and landscape.
Since the 1980s, he has participated in a hot of local public research projets including the following photography campaigns: Archivio dello spazio, part of the Architecture and Environmental Heritage Project organised by the Province of Milan; Osserva.Ter organized by Regione Lomabardia; European Eyes on Japan organised by Eu Jap Fest; and Atlante italiano 2003 organised by Italy’s Ministry of Culture, Trasformazione for Villa Ghirlanda Museum of Contemporary Photography.
Radino has always combined professional work with artistic research, and today he is considered to be one of Italy’s most influential contemporary photographers.
He spearheads photographic research into landscape; over the years, he created a free technique of exploring reality which goes beyond genre, opening itself up to a multi-faceted world that includes nature, urban scenes, human figures, objects, animals and artefacts from human history.
Radino exhibited in galleries and museums in Italy, Japan and the United States. His work is also part of both public and private collections worldwide.
He published a range of books including: Italia di Lucania, Il Diaframma, Milan 1981; Modus Videndi, Idea Books, Milan, 1989; Morphosis, Onebyone Contemporary Art Gallery, Tokyo, 1992; Mutazioni, Art&, Udine, 1994; Inside, Baldini e Castoldi, Milan, 2001; Reframe, le stanze del tempo, Fotografia Italiana Arte Contemporanea, Milan, 2007
Radino recently released some DVDs: After September Eleven, Storie di terra e di mare (Stories of earth and sea), La buona terra dove cresce il riso (The good earth where rice grows), Diario di un viaggiatore occidentale (Diary of a western traveller).
