Michele Di Donato is an Italian photographer based in Sicily. Growing up, his family was accustomed to using photography to document their everyday lives in a leisurely manner however Donato took this a step further by pursuing a career in the field. He has travelled around the world, to countries as far as Japan to display his work.
Di Donato recalls memories from repeated gestures or timeless old movie scenes he finds on a daily basis and applies this to his work, hoping for it to be viewed in the same manner. He prefers the use of conceptual photography which provides him with a more focused idea of what his finished image will look like. This assures his initial understanding of the image and his vision of the completed photographic piece.
