Pierantonio Micciarelli was born in Naples in 1971. Turning 14, he received his first camera as a birthday present, an FM2 Nikon and, ever since, he never stopped shooting.
After a couple of burnt film rolls, finally he could consider himself a photographer, traveling around the world with a bi-optical camera, a polaroid camera and a Spectra light-meter. Landscapes and portraits are his favourite subjects. He’s not tough enough to take pictures of suffering people, though photojournalism is a great passion, and he dislikes still lives, so he just looks around and clicks.
Pierantonio held his first exhibition in 1994 at the “Antico Oratorio Della Passione” of S. Ambrogio Cathedral in Milan, displaying photos taken during one mandatory year in the Italian Army, few of them published on “Private” b/w magazine. In 2008, he held a personal exhibition at the “Teatro dei Comici”, in Rome, where eight 100x100cm photos were displayed, followed by another personal exhibition in 2009 at “Palazzo Santa Chiara”, in Rome.
From 1994, Pierantonio is an international First Assistant Director and an independent film-maker for feature films, commercials, documentaries and music videos. His base-camp is Milan, but he is around…most of the time.
The digital world doesn’t belong to him who fills his fridge with expired film rolls.
