The italian of the new influx. Nicolò joins the photography department from nearby Bolzano (via Hong Kong, Beijing, Paris and Venice). Offer him a warm welcome and a hot coffee (as he doesn't have a yellow-key-o-kaffine yet).
How did you come to learn about Fabrica?
The very first person who suggested to apply to Fabrica was Martin Fuchs, photographer and blog editor of Magnum Photos. Later I assisted Martin Parr for a photo shoot and he said I would be a very good fit for Fabrica. I hope he was right....
What have you been doing before Fabrica?
Is also what I often ask myself... I recently completed a bachelor degree in Chinese at the University of Venice, lived in Hong Kong, Beijing and interned at Magnum Photos in Paris. My work experience covers a little bit of everything everywhere: chef-assistant, teacher, cosmetic shop clerk, graphic designer, production assistant, phone interviewer, dish washer, merchandiser, cinema ticket seller...
What do you hope to get out of this experience?
To achieve a good body of work. I hope Fabrica will be "generous" and support my projects in China. Finally, remembering everyones name wouldn't be bad either. Sorry to the people I'm continuing to introduce myself to.
What will you miss from home?
Wood... Although the building looks great.
Anything else you'd like to share with us?
I'm looking for a bike. No bikes around looking for a nice, friendly, 23 years old, bike confident Italian boy?
