The first time I saw Luca Pierro's photos I found they were at least 70% photoshoped, but they were not. This photographer try to reach the effects, textures and lights with the less manipulation as possible, so he uses a lot of materials like fluor, milk, water and other. The results are pretty magnific, I must admit they speak by themselves.
Taking inspiration from painting and the surrealism in particular, Luca tries to recreate in his portraits ethereal surrealistic atmospheres. Digital processing is minimized. The lightning and the use of various natural materials (water, flour, talcum powder, sugar, etc.) become predominant (Luca's Flickr).
