Gabriele Rodriquez (1960)
He lives in Verona with his wife and 3 children. Lecturer in business subjects until 1997. He has worked as a Chartered Accountant since 1990. Lent to photography, from a young age (1977) this has become an activity that has gradually proved to be more than a passion, more than just a hobby. Photography has probably filled an area of one's cultural life that the studies followed have only touched upon. To his credit the publication of 5 printed volumes, from reportage to the most extreme Mobile Art. A lover of reportage in general and travel specifically, for some years he has dedicated himself to creative photography known as MobileArt. The use of the mobile phone, due to the fact that it is always worn and for its ease of use allows you to record images in times and places immediately. As part of a broad design, the images thus recorded are then reworked with particular Apps on the iPad. The tool, together with the capacitive pen, thus becomes a digital canvas on which to scroll one's fantasies or one's inner ghosts, as if they were visual obsessions that turn into creations that have little to do with respect to the original image. There is much debate as to whether the final product is still attributable to photography, it is true that the starting point is always a photographic sensor, then for the rest it is right that everyone gives their own reading.
As written by Giancarlo Beltrame, art and film critic, in a preface to the latest book presented by the author:… “Gabriele, without the limits dictated by the need for the reproduction of reality that each ontologically camera contains in itself, has started to explore new territories of the image and the imagination always starting from a still photographic shot. Patrols that inevitably lead to interior spaces. Those areas where memories are deposited, dreams are stratified and fantasies are unleashed. ”.
He has published seven books on Photography / MobileArt;

2018: "De Ratione Artis", "Rurality"; 2019: "Frame: Like in a movie" and "Jesus: History of a contemporary iconography".
