Lorenzo Zaccagnini

Born and raised in Pistoia, Tuscany, in 1988. My family has been always very creative, as my father is a self-taught musician, my mum used to sell hand-made dried flowers pictures, and my grandfather won several awards for nativity scenes.

As a teenager, I was very much into theatre (I used to act), cinema (I used to blog) and entertainment (I used to work in holiday resorts). Then I started university in Florence, got a Bachelor’s degree in Foreign Literatures and Intercultural Studies and became passionate about writing and doing photography.

I studied photography with a 1 year course by Gruppo Fotografico Fornaci, amateur photographers with three decades of experience in the field. Then I joined the group itself, with which I did some local exhibitions and also won a local Christmas contest.

I shoot with a Nikon D7200 and Sigma 18-50 2.8 macro lens.
