Being a great lover of the arts and forever in galleries and museums, it is the art of photography that is my passion. Travel anywhere in Bali and the photographic opportunities are endless. The same can be said for the rest of Indonesia and in fact, South-East Asia. Currently there are two excellent photographic exhibitions in Bali. Here’s more from Bali Discovery.
Seeing Double: Photography By Luca Tettoni Two Bali Exhibitions of Photos by Famed Italian Photographer in April 2008.
Luca Tettoni was born in Turin, Northern Italy, and worked at an Italian publishing company before coming to Asia. Now at home in his adopted Asian home, he has become a world-renowned photographer whose work has been featured in numerous coffee-table books featuring South East Asia’s finest hotels and resorts, spas, homes, tropical gardens, cooking and archeological sites.
The first of these two exhibitions, Asian Travels – Black and White Images of Asia feature works from Tettoni’s travels in Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, including Bali. The second exhibition – “Seeking Serenity” showcases the images the Italian he has taken documenting the “Wellness Movement” that is sweeping the world.
Over the years, Luca Tettoni has photographed many of the most exclusive hotels, resorts and spas in the Asia-Pacific region. His keen sense of composition, combined with his technical expertise, captures the desired ambience and brings out the best aspects of interior architecture and design. In his photography of resorts and spas, Luca strives to find imaginative and visually appealing ways to emphasize natural beauty and modern wellness trends.
While residing in Bangkok in the mid-1980s, Luca’s interest in architecture led him to begin photographing Thai-style houses. This work was published in a 1989 book “Thai Style” which became the first of a series of books (Rizzoli International Publications) on building exteriors and interiors featuring traditional Asian construction and decorative arts and crafts.
Luca’s sensitive approach to recording Asian style opened has influenced numerous architects and interior designers around the world via ideas captured by his camera in hotels, resorts and private homes. “The Tropical Garden” was among the first books produced on tropical gardens.
