Alessio Albi is a popular Italian photographer, who specializes in portraits, storytelling, and commercials, with a notable talent for engaging with the viewer.
Hi Alessio, what are you working on at the moment?
Lately, I have been quite busy working on commercials, so I did not have that much time left for my personal projects. I am trying to work on series characterized by a more cinematic style: something a bit different from the pure portraits that I usually do.
What do you like of instant photography?
I have been using instant cameras for a few years now. I am really fascinated by its results and by the unique approach it offers: a slower and more resonated way of shooting, which is typical of analogue photography, but with an immediate result, as with digital cameras.
What did you shoot with the Lomo'Instant Wide?
I realized a short logbook during a holiday with my friends, of which we realized also a digital editorial.
What characteristics of the Lomo’Instant Wide did you like the most??
I really liked its possibility to work much more with manual settings compared to other instant cameras. In particular, I found very helpful the possibility to shoot at 1/30 even in low-light situations, without using the flash.
