DiGirolamo’s book, “Visione” is filled with life: moments, people, expressions, activities, gestures, and the very stuff of life. It is the life in these pictures that makes them so interesting, while simultaneously being a testament to DiGirolamo’s sensitive eye and skill with the camera.
Is this DiGirolamo’s memoir or is it a collective experience that is shared by all of us? Perhaps it is both, and in that the collection rises far above personal snapshots and touches something more universal about the human spirit.
More important than mere craft, DiGirolamo makes us smile, and think, and reflect, and remember.
These photographs may not radically change our lives, but the will give us pause to consider the fleeting moments in our lives- a substantial gift we receive from these images and from DiGirolamo.—Brooks Jensen, Editor of LensWork
Mario DiGirolamo is a physician and scientist who has pursued his artistic muse with a camera for over 60 years. His images have been gathered over many years of exploration and meeting photographic challenges. His current portfolio encompasses multiple perspectives and techniques.
In 1994, DiGirolamo hosted his first solo exhibition at the Shatten Gallery of Emory University in Atlanta. Since then, he has participated in numerous other shows, solo exhibits and competitions. Through the Atlanta Photographic Society, he has received yearly awards in both black and white and color categories; during 1994 through 1998, he also received the annual Francis Wu Award for Creative Photographer of the Year. In 2001, DiGirolamo exhibited both black and white images of Italy and color abstract prints at the Lamar Dodd School of Art Gallery at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA. Currently his work is collected and shown both publicly and privately. His black and white images, capturing the simple beauty of everyday life, feature the people and places of his native Italy, of Europe and of other countries around the world visited during his frequent travels. Seven years in New York City produced a portfolio of urban American images.
In recent years in Atlanta, Georgia, DiGirolamo has developed a series of color abstracts which highlight the same sense of linear movement, textures, and balance of masses that make his black and white images so effective. DiGirolamo publshed a book of black and white images in 2000 entitled Sole e Ombra / Sun and Shadow.
