Franco Guardascione and Imco Brouwer make classic portraits with large format cameras with film; portraits in historical costumes and contemporary portraits with digital cameras to support their project on the Florence centre on the left bank of the Arno river PROGETTO OLTRARNO.

Portraits are since the birth of photography a magic form of representation of the self, and they are still so today in an era in which everyone shoots snapshots of our loved ones and of ourselves with our mobile phones.
Notwithstanding the ease to shoot pictures in every moment and circumstance, or maybe exactly because of this, a portrait made in a photo studio, with care and professionalism, seeking to value esthetics and personality, regains the charm it once had.
