Born in a mountainous corner of Switzerland near the Italian border, Luca Piffaretti was first drawn to photograph his surroundings while in Bologna, where he graduated with a bachelor degree in Contemporary History.
In 2012 he moved to London to attend an MA Photojournalism at the University of Westminster where through the eyes of documentary photographers like Mark Power and Nadav Kander he developed a passion for architecture and urban landscapes.
Luca’s photography process is driven by the same inquisitive spirit that pushed him to explore the streets of Bologna, in constant research of the perfect combination of form, texture and light.
He divides his practice between commercial shoots for architects and interior designers and personal work centred on a psychogeographical exploration of his surroundings.
Luca is one of the co-founder of Mass, a collective of photographers documenting the build environment. Londons - The Polycentric City , is the collective first exhibition and will be on show at The Building Centre in London from the 17th of September. More info here.
A small selection of Limited Edition Prints are available for purchase from Mass Collective's online shop.
