Swiss-Italian, born in 1971, educated in Italy and Switzerland, where he lives and works.
He’s provided himself with the perfect frame and background to invent, create and totally produce images that blend fine arts and craftsmanship. Christian Tagliavini loves designing stories with open endings, on unexplored themes or unusual concepts, featuring uncommon people with their lives and their thoughts made visible. This rich and exciting collision of circumstances results in photos as a final product.
1503 – A VISIONARY RENAISSANCE «1503» is a symbolic date and a non-geographic timeless space, where Christian Tagliavini’s visionary Renaissance takes place. In this visionary Renaissance nine still characters are portrayed in solemn, die-cut costumes to die for. But you’ll also find something contemporary, unpredicted and capturing in their look and attitude: some details are quietly exaggerated while their glances are seducing each other despite you, the observer.
