ROBERTO VEROLINI

ROBERTO VEROLINI

Roberto Verolini (1955) is a natural science teacher with passion for nature photography and portraits. What do I prefer to capture in a picture? What I see, listen to, perceive, and more deeply I love to capture the transcending of every single attempt, indescribable by words but capable to sum it with a profound silence just in that split second before and after the “click” of the camera freezing up that moment in time. Without any special emphasis he describes himself as a humble photographer aware of its own failures with plenty of room to grow.
