Born in Italy in the early 70s Dido Fontana grew up surrounded by his dad’s camera and art works, doing himself art with different media, readying the big giants, lifting weights and looking at every kind of imagery.
In this way in his mind increased an extraordinary heterogenic plethora of images you now can find in his photos which represent not only a figure and where there’s no message but a world.
His soul is baroque and his eye is damned and voyeuristic but his style is raw and sexual, fashion and anti-fashion at the same time.
But first of all it is direct and pure, without alternations or embellishments.
Julia is Valerio Di Lucente (Italy), Erwan Lhuissier (France) and Hugo Timm (Brazil). We met at the Royal College of Art in London having come from different professional backgrounds in editorial design, web and art direction. Our friendship led to collaborations in many different projects whilst always maintaining a strong interest in typography.
The studio was founded in 2008 upon our graduation. Together, we have worked on books, typefaces, posters websites, identities and exhibition design. Our practice is complemented by teaching as visiting lecturers at Kingston University.
