Daniele Testa can be defined more as an author, than merely as a photographer. Every picture is an experience of life, a lived and shared emotion, a journey in a world made of intense tones and clear-cut contrasts.
His portraits go deep down the surface and the result is more an x-ray of the person than a simple picture. His great capacity to bring out the characters of the people he shots and to understand and reinterpretate the reality, allowed him to be awarded with many rewards and to sign several advertising campaigns both national and international like Adidas, Fiat, Dacia, Ducati, A.C. Milan and Tim.
