After having spent his childhood and adolescence in Sicily, his homeland, Mangano started a very particular artistic journey. He studied Still Photography at the Accademia del Teatro alla Scala in Milan, and as such he organised the first personal and collective exhibitions of this genre of photography, along side various publication. A seasoned traveller, Roberto Mangano always took his camera with him, with the aim of capturing the normality of every day life in the faces of his human subjects and in all the objects depicted. He prefers colour and digital photography, as it can be seen in all his photographic series, where strong colours merge with the landscapes and portraits in order to convey most effectively the sensations and emotions of journeys in far away lands. The photos taken in Rajastan, India, for the exhibition road stan, are particularly important, exemplifying a technique that is very close to street photography. In September 2016 the artist took part in the Segni Festival of Capo di Ponte (BS) with the exhibition Natural abstractions, which distinguishes itself from his other works by the chosen technique. The photographer explores the distance necessary to the eye in order to identify anobject, and thus decides to widen or narrow the perspective so that it is no longer identifiable as an object, but only as a texture.
