Contemporary Fine art photography Gallery&Curator
Over the past 20 years, the Swiss photographer Régis Colombo has won renown, at home and abroad, by his portraits, advertising work, landscapes and, above all, by his long-distance trips. This still-image backpacker has travelled the length and breath of the five continents, scoured some forty or so countries very often preferring to leave the beaten track and find places that have never been photographed before. Because his tirelessly curious eye, sensitive to the slightest variation in light, demanding technical perfection, is always seeking THE photo, that is to say the one that will concentrate magical shades, vibrations and moments that cannot be told with words.
For several years now, Régis Colombo has also been doing personal work, taking photography in a more pictorial direction with disconcerting compositions. He is recognised for his constantly evolving technique and is work in the field of furtive photography, always seeking the tiniest detail. He takes us to a timeless world where the diversity of objects and beings is highlighted. He captures a fragment of space and time that will never return by holding his camera in one hand and his imaginary setting in the other.
