About Paolo Vegas

Paolo Vegas creates dramatic, carefully staged fashion photographs, often utilizing theatrical lighting to create high-contrast and glossy effects. A year after graduating from the Institute of European Design, in Milan, the artist began to collaborate on advertising campaigns with photographers such as the portrait artist Giovanni Gastel. More recently, Vegas, who lives and works in his native Biella, Italy, has experimented in his fashion shoots with themes of cloning and doubling.

Italian, b. 1973, Biella, Italy
