Giuseppe Nucci was born in 1982 in a small town between Abruzzo and Molise. Since he was a child he has always been motivated to find new ways of inspiration, then he moved to Fermo, where he attended the renowned ITIS “Montani” and reached the title of Computer Expert. In 2009, after finished his studies in Computer Science at the University of L’Aquila, he moved to Rome. Here, what seemed to be only a latent appeal to photography becomes a clear passion and he hold his artistic initiation. The cultural context where he is living offers him the opportunity to devote himself with dedication and passion to the study of this art. As a careful observer of the reality that surrounds him with a private temperament and as a sensitive lover of the little things, he finds in the photography his meaning of expression. In recent years, after learning the techniques and honed his aesthetic sense, he has started to focus his studies and works on specific photo essay as a genre that allows him to enter directly in the “stories” he describes, though with discretion; an approach whose basic premise lies in the conception of photography as a storytelling tool. The essence of his work is the sum of two essential elements: the empathy he creates with the subjects retracted and the refined use of light. Moreover, the etymology of the word “photography”, “writing with light” bears multiple suggestions: grab, catch, staring through a philanthropic and curious attitude the motions of the human soul.
