Italy: Nicola Ughi

"My name is Nicola Ughi and I like to steal people's soul. Yes, because that’s what people who are portrayed say about my work.

Portrait photography is a part of my job that I love most and gives me the greatest satisfaction.  I shoot corporate portraits for companies, but that's not all. In 2017 I began a project called "Sediarossa" (the red chair) in which I shoot famous people, and they aren't sitting on a red chair.

The red chair is, as I call it, my "non-place"; by sitting on it, those who let themselves be portrayed pause for a moment in front of the lens. It is the "fil-rouge" that unites many well-known and lesser-known faces in front of Nicola Ughi's lens."
