We are Cartacarbone: Gregorio Adezati and Francesco Marconcini,
a duo of creative photographers.
Working in the editorial and advertising fields since 2014,
we blend artisanal care and visual exploration to create sophisticated and original images. Our research and approach draw from the diverse worlds of art, cinema and music.
Our personal projects focus on the storytelling of fantastic worlds where portrayed people become fictional characters, and objects become symbols. We love working with natural elements and poor materials to stage surreal scenarios that allow us to literally play on set.
Cartacarbone means carbon paper. We like the concept of a thin layer hidden between two pieces of paper, allowing informations to pass through from one to the other. We chose an Italian compound word since we are two friends who share ideas that result in a common output. A word made of two elements – paper and carbon – recalling the visual contrast between light and darkness.
