About the Photographer:
Tony Luciani has been a full-time, professional fine artist since his Ontario College of Art post-graduate studies in Florence, Italy in 1978. Having been interested in photography for just as long, he has decided to expand his artistic vision. 'The Art In Fine Photography' marries creativity with technology, and from canvas to viewfinder. For Tony Luciani, as a painter and photographer, the common ground for both is about the passion of desire, need to create, and the illusive meaningful 'hum' within.
About the Portraits:
The faces included within this collection are meant not to be necessarily 'pretty' or 'nice', but to capture the essence of fleeting significance in one person’s life's story. They are 'real and unpretentious', expressing moments of both human frailty and exuberance, exasperation and resolve. They are best viewed from the 'gut', so that the head doesn't get in the way. This series was initially conceived with a book project in mind, but has grown to be so much more. As well as the documentation of people’s feelings in a visual format, I’m hoping to construct a meaningful dialogue between ‘the now’ and ‘the then.’
Seniors are the history to the present, and a guide for us in our future. My role as photographer on this project is to cohesively join all the aspects of why and how we live, sensitively composed with a creative eye.
My experiences as a painter have taught me that art should originate, and hopefully be absorbed from the inside, out. The substitution of stretched canvas for camera viewfinder or of oil paint for digital processing software remains very much the same. It filters through the artist.
But, ultimately, it’s all about the ‘hum.’
