Acclaimed as a figurehead of contemporary photography, Luigi Tazzari lives in Ravenna, where in 1983 his career as a professional photographer began. He attended the lessons by Luigi Ghirri and he was inspired by the elements of the Scuola Emiliana di Fotografia. Passion and natural inclination unite in intense work allowing Tazzari to see numerous reportages published in important national and international periodical, among which it is worth noting L’Espresso, Dove, Panorama, and Viajes National Geographic Spagna. The excellent reviews and the care for each shot brought him to the attention of biggest names in photography, and it is in this way that he began a twenty-year collaboration with Agenzia Fotografica Grazia Neri and with the Parisian Gamma Presse Images. From 2004 he focused on the publication of various books of photography which collect his series, accompanied by texts which exalt beauty and worth. Initially he collaborated with Minerva Edizioni, and successively with Damiani, with which in 2009 he published the work Four seasons, dedicated to the Adriatic coast. Important author among photographic critics, such as Roberta Valtorta and Roberto Mutti, have written about him.
