Stefano Allari is an Italian photographer.
His education was mainly scientific and technical, while at the same time cultivating interests in music, visual arts, and photography. He has been teaching several subjects, e.g. informatics, mathematics, natural science,
and has been a speaker at conferences worldwide. He currently holds photography classes in Northern Italy.
He sees photography as a means to question and interpret reality, and transfigure it through his
personal outlook on existence, remembering the lesson of Hamlet: "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy".
Technically, he aims at perfection of detail and
tonal nuances. To this extent, he works mainly with analog film on Large Format (8x10" / 20x25cm) cameras. He also uses digital cameras, exploiting the advantages of multi-shot techniques to guarantee a level of detail that is
close to, or even surpasses, the quality of Large Format film.
Stefano Allari lives in Fidenza, a small city in Northern Italy.
