About & contact
Andrea Taurisano is an Italian photographer currently based in Norway.
During the last 15 years he has traveled and photographed extensively in both polar regions and Greenland with focus gradually shifting from the natural to the human landscape. More recently he photographed in the streets of Japan as well as traveling several times to Russia (including Siberia), Mongolia, Iran and Afghanistan, where he carried out documentary projects while working as a landslide specialist in the Hindu Kush.
The name “Il cimento della fotografia” was inspired by the name of Antonio Vivaldi’s most famous opus, the one containing the Four Seasons. The Italian word “cimento” means excercise, experiment, commitment.
