Ciao! Hello! Salut! Hola! Hallo!
I'm Andrea Frongia.
I'm Italian and I love travelling and living in
other parts of the world.
When I was a child I said:
"When I grew up I want to be a photographer and travel around the world"
so it is!
My big passion is not only photography in general, but in particular ancient process.
So I started to work only by film and I never left this way cause I love the style of timeless pictures and I want to give people an image that will remain forever.
My work offers people the opportunity to have a personal and original photographer wherever and whenever they want.
I DO CAUSE I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY AND I LOVE MAKE HAPPY OTHERS PEOPLE!
I studied at the Carrara Fine Arts Academy where in 2014 I graduated in Design and Visual Arts.
In the same year, I moves to Brussels where I completely dedicate myself to analog photography.
I went to Ecole "Le Septante cinqu", a very prestigious art school in the middle of a forest where I spent my days in darkroom.
There I learned how to shoot on films and how to develop by myself.
In 2016 I started an internship school in Studio Baxton with Silvano Magnone where I discovered Wet Plate Collodion photography and from the first moment I decided that this kind of photography would be my direction.
Collodion process was invented in 1851 by Frederick Scott Archer.
It's a kind of photography realized on iron or glass support and give one of the best image ever.
To learn this process I started in 2020 with Martì Andinach in Barcelona and now I'm buying all stuff to realize these beautiful images.
So work with me means support an artist.
SOMETHING ABOUT ME
I speak English, French, Spanish and Italian. I'm studing German in a language school.
My beautiful family is living in Canary Islands, one of my favourite place in the world.
I travel with a van. It allows me to sleep in the most beautiful places I find.
I'm practicing collodion photography and my dream is to become a pro.
I like 60s vibes, I am for world peace and for any kind of love can exist.
I love all possible artistic expression.
