Rome, Italy

Roberto Manetta started his professional photographic career in 1999 when he teamed up with the photographer Barbara Taurua to create B-Imagine. Roberto specializes in glamour photography and reportage, including projects that have slowly delved into a very personal search of the mixing and marrying of so called “Artistic Nudes” and portraits. As a freelance photographer, Roberto is particularly popular for managing a very suggestive use of shadow and light in portraits and street photography and shows a great skill in creating a pleasant blend of documention by telling visual stories of places and of the people who are crossing them. After many years of study he has gone from analogic to digital but always trys hard to keep to the ideals, the form and details of classical photography. He lives and works in Rome, where he continues to maintain an active “photographic idea” created years ago with Barbara, showing his work in galleries and art spaces of the capital. Since 2004, he works closely with several artistic groups in the representation of dance, theater and the performing arts related to music. He is also shooting for Actress/Actors agencies in Rome. His photographs have appeared in many national and international books and magazines devoted to the Art of Photography
