Born in Castellamare di Stabia (province of Naples) in 1961 and living in Treviso since 2004, Umberto Verdoliva has been photographing since 2006. Today, he holds workshops and in-depth studies on street photography. Member since 2010 of the international collective “Street Photographers”, in 2013 he founded “Spontanea”, an Italian collective dedicated to street photography. He has approached photography after having seen FAN HO’s Hong Kong works. While in love with Cartier Bresson, André Kertész and Elliot Erwitt, his greatest passion is the humanity surrounding him, of which he is a careful observer. Capable of transforming simple moments of ordinary life into moments with significant meaning, filled with poetry and sometimes with a subtle irony, his shots almost always possess a careful research in his vision, as his body of work shows. For Umberto, photography is a personal way to understand humanity, its implications and contradictions. He also does it to bear witness to the times and especially to have a tool with which to become a better man. He wouldn’t expect anything less from photography.
