Nicholas Scarpinato is a young, up-and-coming photographer from Richmond, USA. His work walks the fine, and sometimes blurred, line between fantasy, fiction, and illusion. Yes, they are absolutely digitally altered, but that’s nothing new in this digital age. What makes his work stand out from the rest is the perceived texture of the shots. They have the feel of a classic painting. The concepts behind each one is not too common either.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
