Antonio Strafella was born in 1982 in Lecce, Italy.
He was drawn to photography at a very young age when he furtively discovered his father’s Hasselblad.
His education began at the Art Institute of Lecce (Istituto Statale d’Arte di Lecce), where he earned a diploma in Graphic Advertising and Photography. He later furthered his studies in Rome specializing in photography at The European Institute of Design.
In Rome, he continues to develop and refine his personal interpretation of images. Light, immersed in darkness, is a dominant motif of his photography, coupled with his retouching expertise.
Antonio’s professional path is filled with artistic encounters and professional partnerships both with advertising agencies as well as post-production studios. His extensive experience includes international campaigns for Nissan, L’Unita, The Ministry of Transport (Ministro dei trasporti), and PD.
He collaborates with Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) and is teaching a photography course there.
Antonio is currently working in both Rome and Milan.
