Marco Beretta / Spiritus
Marco Beretta took his first shot when he was 15 years old. At the time that he discovered the secrets of the darkroom, he was assistant to a professional photographer. Careful observer of men and sights, he has traveled alone in Asia over the past 20 years with his inseparable Hasselblad. As a professional photographer, he has been devoting himself to a personal fine art project, an intimate pursuit of silent photography. Buddhist monks images, their symbols, sacred places and moments of prayer are the subjects. This search has led him and continues to lead Marco to extensive travels across Tibet, India, Mongolia, Laos, Burma and many other countries, collecting memories of a fascinating Far East which inspire his hand and model his sensitivity. His most recent work “Spiritus” has been shown in China, Burma and India. A life of constant travels around the world corresponds to his idea of freedom and comprehension that he brings with him. Pondering from an airplane over the Orient or surrounded by the silence of inaccessible monasteries, his ideas take shape. Represented by Melesi Art Gallery in Italy and Ning Space in China, he lives and works in Milan.
