Born in Rome but now based in London since 2009, Fabio Forin is a self-taught photographer and writer. His work straddles portrait, still life and street photography, focusing on human stories within the urban landscape. He often adds bits of text alongside his photographs to provide additional context to the images.
Forin has recently exhibited in Moscow, Athens and got selected for the TAYLOR WESSING PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT PRIZE 2016 that went on show at the National Portrait Gallery in London last winter and toured across the UK for most of 2017.
L I M / N A L is his first solo exhibition, went on show in London last April and brought together photographs taken between 2009 and 2016 - mostly in London, New York and the Middle East - and aims to document the "movement of a man through the last decade of his life". READ MORE.
His artist statement reads:
"I want to show what's inside someone else's skin. Taking photographs is like making a small cut on someone's skin and let just a few drops of their blood drip onto the palm of your hand for the rest of the world to see".
One day someone told him "You are good, the future can be bright. You just need to learn how to play poker". Today he is probably here because poker is not really his thing.
