Photography / Travels

So I had a massive introduction written for this post which got completely erased when I tried to insert the pictures (thank you WordPress). Now I’m a bit out of patience so I’ll keep it short. Back in May 2014, Gabriele and I did our first little trip together to Prague. It was cold, we had to buy coats at Zara. We ate hotdogs in the street, I got drunk at a place called “Zombie Bar” […]

Born in Ferrara, Italy, in 1987, Fabio Selvatici has been working in graphic arts since he was only 13 as a freelancer. Unbelievably enough, he is self-taught.

In 2010, he decided to marry his artistic sensibility to his technical skills with […]
