Alessandro Carboni

Alessandro was born in Sardinia in 1971, the land where he grew up and still lives; he took its first steps in the dark room in the early 90s, but, thanks to the advent of digital camera, he began to focus his attention on the landscape in 2009.

Graduate in economics he has embarked on a career as a tax expert, but always with an eye to the nature of his wild and fascinating island. Currently he continues the profession of fiscal expert but also he is professional photographer that organizes photography courses in collaboration with the major European experts in the field.

He escapes most urbanized areas in search for uncontaminated places. Through the sensitivity of his pure images he managed to capture or even unveil the beauty of the territory he chooses to the observer and discoverer every time.

Today more than ever, our planet is in danger: Alessandro with his pictures aims at raising public awareness on this subject. He firmly believes that care and preservation of the environment that surrounds us start precisely from the appreciation of its beauty and with the ability to look at landscapes with different eyes.

Actually his most important projects are “Discovery Sardinia”: the story of a team of four international photographers that want to resume Sardinia in images and video, telling the landscapes, the seasons and the lights of this exceptional island.

In the last few years Alessandro has received awards such as Commended Image in the “Wildlife Photographer of the Year” in the category “Earth Environments”, and the first prize in the competition organized by Autonomous Region of Sardinia “Visions of the Coast”.
