Marco Marcone

Roma (RM), 1967


Classe 1967, sono nato a Roma e all’età di 12 anni ricevo in regalo dal mio papà la prima fotocamera, una Nikon, che tuttora conservo e sporadicamente utilizzo.
Da allora non ho mai smesso di fotografare.
Ho una laurea in ingegneria, sono un manager di professione e la fotografia non è il mio mestiere, ma un amore. Vivo a Roma con mia moglie Erika e le mie figlie, Ludovica e Cecilia.
Ho frequentato corsi e seminari tenuti da importanti fotografi italiani ed internazionali, con alcuni dei quali ho stretto rapporti di amicizia.
Ho a cuore temi sociali e culturali; ho fotografato l’uomo e le sue vicende ad ogni latitudine, a tutte le temperature e in ogni condizione ambientale, cercando di instaurare relazioni piuttosto che rubare ritratti.
Alcune delle mie foto sono state pubblicate in Italia e all’estero, sono state oggetto di mostre espositive e hanno ricevuto molti riconoscimenti.

I was born in Rome in 1967, I have been photographing since I was 12, when I got my first camera as a gift from my father. Since then, I never stopped looking at the world from behind the camera’s lens. My interest for the world and the environment grew day by day, together with my passion for travelling. My love for travelling made me discover the documentary photography and reportage. I photograph in order to tell stories, for an emotional and aesthetic research. The perpetual research of light, colour, of the right moment but mostly of the interaction with the people I meet gives me a great push towards sharing and also helps me understand the human nature: for me this is an indispensable activity. I got many gratifications from publications on magazines and also from participating and having good results in National and International Competitions. I presented my works in many exhibitions. Sometimes I exhibit my work in skit nights in cultural and photography clubs.
I never consider my pictures "stolen" but rather, donate. After all, by shooting with wide-angle lenses, theft would be impossible. I try to stay as close as possible to the subject, establishing a relationship that helps me to tell about reality as much as possible.
