Giuseppe Sannino

I am an analogue photographer based in Malmö, Sweden specializing in silver gelatin printing and 19th century photography.

My passion lies in black and white photography. I have always captured images by using film and I started my journey in alternative photography during my time living in Barcelona, Spain. I was part of the art collective “Las Chicas de Talbot” in the Taller Milans workshop situated in the Gothic quarter in the city.

I feel that in an ever fast moving world time is a key component in people’s lives. It seems that we never have enough of it and has made photographs seem less important. Society is ever more impatient and the culture of instant gratification can lead to images being considered as disposable items without understanding that in a not so distant past photography took time, patience and dedication.

My aim is to bring back the mystery and beauty of analogue photography. When you re-live these techniques you truly appreciate the craft, skill and effort that the founding figures of photography tried to achieve.
