Vita Christian Tagliavini

Christian Tagliavini was born in 1971 and educated in Italy and Switzerland, where he lives and works as a photographer. Before his photography career, he worked in engineering and architecture firms and as a graphic designer, which provides him with the perfect frame and background to invent, create, and totally produce images that blend fine arts and craftsmanship. His pictures are not simply images; Christian Tagliavini loves designing stories with open endings that require the observer’s complicity on unexplored themes or unusual concepts, featuring uncommon people with their lives and thoughts made visible. This rich and exciting collision of circumstances results in photos as a final product. www.christiantagliavini.com
