Originally from Italy, Paolo begins to develop his passion for photography while travelling through different countries in his early twenties. He was fascinated by the opportunity to capture elements of different cultures or moments of unusual beauty hidden in everyday life, but later moved to a more personal and intimate reading of reality. With that approach he started exploring the possibility of composing images with a deeper conceptual impact, reflecting his own emotional landscapes and his visual art influences more clearly.
Before moving to Vancouver, Canada, where he currently lives, Paolo attended several photography classes in Mexico City and New York City. He now continues to develop his style, shooting freelance in North America and focusing mostly on conceptual photography, urban photography, environmental portraiture, and still life.
His current work explores the relationships human beings form with their environments, and the usage of panning techniques and long exposure to capture time, motion and urban feelings.
His last exhibition “Pulse with life” has been featured at the “LAB ART SHOW” and “ART IN THE CITY” , Vancouver, respectively in April and May 2016.
“Paolo Rubini’s natural composition and use of dramatic black and white enhances his way of seeing things. There is so much going on in many of his images it takes a connoisseur to drink it all in.” Allan de la Plante – Vancouver -“Paolo Rubini’s reading of reality through his sharp black and white photography offers a fascinating tool to explore the timeless contrast between life’s opposite forces: motion and stillness.” PhotoManhattan - New York City –
