Simon Zimbardo has worked for many years as a musician and photographer on stages and in studios – and often combines the essence of both worlds. Because the rhythm of life also shows itself in faces and in artistic stagings, sometimes open, sometimes hidden. For him, making this visible and perceptible is a passion from which his pictures live. Beauty and fashion photography open up further creative spaces and elements, which in turn tell their stories and want to be staged. Before any artistic realization, an optimal result requires intensive preparations, the right environment, the professional technique, the right mood, sincere communication. In photography the feeling for the right moment is added. Thus the personal rhythm, the personal note can become visible. The world is sound, also in photography.
