Fabrizio Magris Photography
Fabrizio Magris was born in 1960 in Pordenone, Italy, where he lives and works.
Magris' photographic training and education was mainly developed at the Centre for Research and Archiving of Photography (CRAF) of Spilimbergo. Magris has been taking photographs since 1990, when he bought an enlarger to print his own black and white images.
The deepening of the neo-realist photography movement, led in Italy by Italo Zannier in the 1950-60s, motivated Magris to develop his first work in the Italian region of Friuli and neighbouring valleys. He recorded the local people, the tavern, the altarpieces and the votive frescoes. From 1996, Magris gradually moves away from black and white to color, starting a new research on urban landscape in which he highlights the inherent abstraction of reality. He has received several awards, including in 2007, a special mention in the competition "ManinFesto Photography" at the Center of Contemporary Art.
