Paulo Renftle’s passion for art and photography, cultivated in his family, led him to take his first polaroids in New York at the age of ten, fascinated by the power of this tool, capable of capturing light and time.
He began his career at the age of twenty, when he shot his first international campaign in Bali, for a well-known sportswear brand. The island of the gods became a recurring set for his photo shoots.
Later, his love for luxury watches and super cars led him to collaborate with the most prestigious brands in the industry.
Over the years, he made several short films, including “Verdi” dedicated to the great composer, shot in his Milanese residence, the short film is rich in symbolism and hidden messages, premiered at the Odeon cinema in Milan.
A recurring light signature, composition and geometry could be found in his whole photographic work developed in twenty years career, from the black and white artist portraits series to commercials works.
His latest artistic production is focussed on capturing the feminine beauty at the edge of the photography spectrum, from classic medium format black and white film to high end Hasselblad digital platforms defining, in different series, great contrast between Sicilian seaside, underwater and a futuristic floating environment created just by laser lights as seen on his recent drop on SuperRare.
