Before Franco Fontana began taking photographs, he worked as a decorator for a furniture showroom in the 1950s. Subsequently, he developed his innovative visual language in colour photography. He used 35 mm cameras with telephoto lenses to achieve a flattening of the image space and shimmering contours. In combination with the intensity of his colour constellations and strikingly simple compositions, he creates abstract images that nevertheless do not appear artificial.
