AUTHOR: Massimiliano Balo' (Italy)
Massimiliano Balò was born in Sicily. He is a surrealist, Impressionist , Minimalist and Visionary artist. Through photography He make visible his poetic and metaphysical visionary. His works are mostly abstract featured by deformed characters or shadows which give you a feeling to live in a dream like world. He uses his personal technique shooting with a digital camera on a faster manual zooming with slow shutter speed to create a surreal effect to finish the work processing it with his fingers in a touching Pad scream. His works are mostly black and white but he also loves colours.
