Roberto Panciatici

Movement and personal connections define Italian photographer Roberto Panciatici’s work, as evidenced by his intimate, close-up portraits and candid, unstaged frames. For him, a delicate touch or a truthful, simple moment speaks volumes—more so than a particular style or look. In fact, when it comes to style, Panciatici says he doesn’t follow any parameters, and specific trends or lighting techniques don’t shape his vision. “I love to change,” he says, “not only in my life through traveling and pain and believing, but in my photography as well. I’m always focused on the next step, and the thing I’ve always cared deeply about is the mood, not necessarily the aesthetic.”
