Portraits Enigma didn’t start as a series of portraits, just begun to happen exploring. Is a spontaneous collection of unique characters that by one reason or another Riccardo ended up doing their portraits. After a few he realise that history transcends the photographer, sometimes even the person photographed, its again a matter of some of his favourite subjects: synchronisation and spontaneous events that build up by the cosmos.

The way the new series is building is that the character has to be in its context that explains the complexity of the person, is more than just a portrait, probably it becomes an essential piece of memory or history . The place where he does it, what we include or not, doing what will change the result, it’s a blend between the character, it’s life/context and Riccardo as witness of it all.
