My passion and projects comes from nature, adventure stories, fantasy films that have contributed phenomenally to my project ideas
and the major part of my photographs.
I am always very attentive, in all of my movements, in everything surrounding me.

I often dream about adventures, fairy tales and mythological women.  I look around at the objects surrounding me, with attention, searching for a link between a nude body more than a face. Geometric lines and original compositions are always at the centre of my attention when I launch upon a new project. Then, once I’ve decided in my mind I search for the right model, striving to bring them to express my idea in the best way possible.  In order to follow the project that I have in mind, defining it and at last finalizing it, needs to have a series of moments in which it is me, in first person, that organizes the job; I’m not talking only about the search of the set materials, but also and mostly, the building of the set.  At last, what I love the most is to have a direct approach with the model/s with whom I am working: I think that the bond with them is fundamental, and the most important thing, for the realization of the image I have in mind.

  • Roberto Manetta started his professional photographic career in 1999. 
  • He specializes in glamour photography and reportage, including projects that have slowly delved into a very personal search of the mixing and marrying of so called "Creative Nudes" and portraits. 
  • As a freelance photographer, Roberto is particularly popular for managing a very suggestive use of shadow and light in portraits and street photography and shows a great skill in creating a pleasant blend of documention by telling visual stories of places and of the people who are crossing them. 
  • After many years of study he has gone from analogic to digital but always trys hard to keep to the ideals, the form and details of classical photography.
  • He lives and works in Rome, where he continues to maintain an active "photographic idea" about the creative photography, showing his work in galleries and art spaces of the capital.
  • Since 2004, he works closely with several artistic groups in the representation of dance, theater and the performing arts related to music. 
  • He is also shooting for Actress/Actors agencies in Rome. His photographs have appeared in many national and international books and magazines devoted to the Art of Photography.
