Daniele Lisi (Rimini, 1982) is a photographer based in Rimini, Italy. He graduated in 2007 at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Urbino (Academy of Fine Arts) in Progettazione Multimediale (communication design), after attending the Scuola Del Libro, also in Urbino. This city and its historical legacy strongly influenced his passion for architecture and contemporary art. His first works focused on 20th Century Fascist architecture. Through the use of photography as an instrument for analysis, he starts an anthropological research, which investigates both architectural and archaeological elements of daily use.
In 2008 the Rimini city Gallery (Galleria dell’Immagine di Rimini) hosts his self-developed project, “Architettura – Informale, colonie a mare, Rimini” (Informal Architecture: seaside fascist buildings in Rimini). The project illustrates everyday objects found in the “colonie” and the architecture of the “colonia” itself. The objects can be observed as separate identities as well as within their original environment. In 2008 Daniele meets in Ravenna Italian photographer Guido Guidi, whose lecture at the Accademia will inspire him and prompt a personal evolution.
In 2009 he attends Guidi’s Workshop at IUAV (University of Architecture) in Venice. When in Venice, he studies the works of the most renowned American photographers, focusing his studies on the analysis of the photos mise-en-scene.
He worked with photographers, architects and local institutions, the latter of which helped him develop several projects, such as: “Pasta di Romagna, impronte di fabbrica” (pasta from Romagna, a factory and its vestiges), a photo project that focuses on the relationship between men and factory, developed in the former pasta factory Ghigi in Morciano di Romagna before the removal of all heavy machinery. In 2008 he takes part in the collective photographic exhibition “Turismi” (tourism) at the Villa Mussolini by Gigliola Foschi. In 2010, together with other architects and photographers, he founds the Emilia Romagna regional section of the AIPAI (Italian association for industrial archaeology and heritage), to which he is currently affiliated and cooperates with. He is currently working on several projects. These projects object is to find landscapes identity using photography and mass media as research and analysis instruments. Read Less
