With a degree in chemistry, ever since he was a child, Corinaldi was passionate about photography. He took many trips to Italy, France, England, Greece, Spain, and Israel, in an attempt to immortalize the most evocative and poetical locations. However, he devoted most of his career to Venice, exploring through lighting, framing, and technique a fascinating and difficult topic. Corinaldi’s style followed an ideal of beauty and harmony during years of great photographic activity in Italy both ideologically and socially, with constant reference to world photojournalism. However, Corinaldi chose poetic documentation: his lens was focused on the faces of ordinary people, lingering upon the moods of places and thus accepting the challenge of banality and everydayness.
