About Patrizio Cipollini

Patrizio Cipollini started shooting in 1975 with a borrowed camera and soon learned how to develop B&W films and print photos, both for himself and for other amateur photographers. He bought his first Olympus OM1 camera in 1977. Patrizio shoot, developed, printed and sold his first chronicle/reportage photo to IL TEMPO newspaper in the late 70. Half day working to sell a photo: it was the “analogic B/W era”. Influenced by Fontana’s saturated and minimalist shoots, he started using Kodak Ektachrome 64 slides during the 80s: his ghaphic and colorful compositions earned him several amateur prizes and honorable mentions. Patrizio started his digital-era late, around 2005; at the end of the decade he focused on and experimented the potential of low-resolution cellphone cameras, much before the latest smartphones built-in photo manipulation apps. In 2011 he went back to analogic media, falling in love with old polaroids – both instant (peel-off) and integral (SX-70) processes, and he is now an active member of Polaroiders community ( In 2013 he started workshops on Polaroid history, cameras, shooting, image manipulation and lifting. Several Patrizio’s photos have been published by IL MANIFESTO newspaper. Since November 2013 a selection of Patrizio’s Polaroid Film Lifting have been available at Carlo Gallerati Gallery (Rome, Italy).
