On the Spot: Nanni Licitra

Nanni Licitra (25) lives in Bologna and is a university student who loves analog photography (medium size, 35mm, 110mm, instant). Always charmed by pictures of great bands of the past (Joy Division, The Stooge, Pink Floyd, Velvet Underground), which for him are much more realistic and, at the same time, more dreamlike than the modern digital photos.

He begins to read up about analog until he bumped into an online community that gave space exclusively to this and to its many fans: Lomography.it; he realized that analog was not dead and obtaining films was much easier than he thought. So Nanni began to shoot and experiment with different types of film, coarse grained  film became his hallmark, often influenced by his musical tastes (New Wave, Post Punk, Alternative rock).

Recently, thanks to Ishotpix.com, he had the possibility to take analog pictures in a wide range of musical events. Among his gallery: emerging Italian artists such as “Testaintasca” and “I Cani”, historical Italian artists such as “Diaframma”of Fiumani” or “3 allegri ragazzi morti” and international artists like “Chinese Man”, “DJ Food”, “Dj Koze” and “2many dj’s”, always trying to recreate the atmosphere of those dated photos that inspired him so much.
