In the photographic area, he has exhibited the series Anhelos y Paisajes (at the Latin American Institute in Berlin), Memorias (in Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional), and is currently working on the photographic project Mirada Urbana in 12 European cities. Literary influences mixed with visual metaphors, reality, fantasy, death and man today are themes with which Antonio Savinelli has developed his work. With a profound aesthetic sense in the frame composition and ambiences far removed from an immediate reality, his works leans towards an oneiric and symbolic spectrum.
