Oxygen for the eyes ... his passion is pointed towards landscape, a reality where he literally loves immerse himself in and isolate, almost to listen to a silent harmony so that then he can, through photography, give us back its magic, magic made of volumes, of its appearance, of empty spaces, of perspectives, of depth, of balance, of references, of shades, of contrasts and above all of light...

Stefano Ciol, the heir of a photography dynasty, combines personal research with his professional work. He undertakes continual technological updating which leads him to crosspollinate traditional methods with the most recent and advanced ones for the purpose of perfecting correspondence between his own vision and the final image. This process is fully evident in the control of shades in his black and white photographs of landscapes, a revisitation in contemporary key of a genre that has its roots in the history of photography. He lives and works at Casarsa della Delizia (PN) Italy
