Bruno D’ALIMONTE  (Italy, 1969)

Bruno DALIMONTEBruno D’ALIMONTE is of Italian origin, though he was born and currently resides in Brussels, Belgium.  His intimate photographic work pays a tribute to fragility through an ongoing indecisiveness that reflects chaos surrounded by chimeras.  His latest work is the fruit of an unstable but necessary choice depicting a pictorial and metaphoric tension in the narrative.

This timeless imagery of his originates from the association of toy lenses with his Mediterranean eye. The images he creates are undefined and vague; they play with the narrative codes of everyday images yet are deeply intertwined with the ineffable. The world he shows us through his lens is poetically puzzling, it reflects our evanescence beyond any form of vanity.

Bruno D’Alimonte lives and works in Brussels.  His photographic predilection is for social and urban notions that he likes to phase with the passing of time.  He is also known for the portrait photography he does for Le Soir, the Belgian newspaper.
