Pietro Milici

My name is Pietro Milici, I am 32 years old. I was born in Palermo, but for half of my life I have been living around the world. I graduated in Marine Biology in Palermo (Italy). Through different jobs with an Italian company called “ Gruppo Digitale”, I had the possibility to discover a great gratification when using the camera. I took a master degree in “Photography and Design”, at Elisava University in Barcelona (Spain). In Barcelona I worked with a photographic collective called “Piel de Foto”; that period of my life was very important for my photographic career – I started to see how a publication takes form, why a photograph is more important than another, how to manage contacts, get investors, etc. I also collaborated for one year with Jordi Bernadó, a Spanish photographer that works in the field of architecture and art. It was an interesting year, full of great satisfactions, but above all it was an year of growth in dedication, rigor, unattainable perfection, in communication and in creation. An experience that has made me understand which are the practices to employ and, above all, the mistakes that are not to be committed. I love the image itself, the non-subject photo and structures that are not confined in a narrow and marked typology. Feeling doesn’t have limits. I have learned to love the evocation and the sublimation of it. The circulation of the images allows us to analyze the social and aesthetic change of the world. But photography is not born as an objective form to perceive what surrounds us. It is a subjective run of looks, of interpretation, of knowledge and also of pretense. It is a path that encourages us to interact with life and with the potential to create images or concepts. Every created image constitutes a step in my culture and belongs to my cultural and professional baggage: which I want to share, to criticize, to demolish and to improve.
I then started working as an assistant and a freelance photographer in Spain and Italy, where I had the chance to exhibit some of my works in different galleries such as The Gallery of Modern Art in Palermo, the H2O art gallery in Barcelona, etc.. and also collaborated with different companies such as: Microsoft, Münchhausen, Actar, , Fondazione Telecom Italia, etc…
