If you’re a fan of world photography, or even photography for that matter, the name Daniele Tamagni should ring a bell. Long before Daniele’s acclaimed recognition, I was lucky enough to have worked with him in my earlier days of modelling. Above is a shot by Daniele as I prepared for our photo-shoot in London. His attention to detail is perhaps more than just a talent, but a gift.
Tamagni’s iconic photographic collection of Sapeurs in Gentlemen of Bacongo has no doubt been a global hit. His documentation of the Congolese life-style phenomenon, published in 2009 by Trolley Books has influenced many genres; from fashion (Paul Smith, one of the world’s most renowned and influential menswear designers) to mainstream pop music (Solange‘s music video ‘Losing You‘).
The award-winning Italian photographer (winner of the World Press Photo 2011) is holding a Street Photography workshop in Milan this weekend 13th-14th April.
Amongst the buzz of Milan Design Week- Salone del Mobile, this is an exclusive opportunity for photographers within this field to improve and upgrade their portfolio as well as have their work critiqued by the expert himself. Tamagni’s workshop will be divided into two parts; theoretical and practical.
