full-colour, square-format photography
Roberto Monachello is an outdoor photographer and mountain addicted; his style is inspirated from the greatest outdoor and mountain photographers of the past and present like Vittorio Sella, Galen Rowell, Charlie Waite, Bruce Percy, or Franco Fontana and Alberto Bregani.
Since 2022, he has only photographed in square format (1:1), in his search for a simplification of vision and photographic composition.
Based in München, Germany.
Digital has given us a lot of new photographic possibilities and an easier workflow, but after more than 20 years of digital photography we are getting used to images with an artificial "look and feel". Roberto doesn't reject digital, not at all, but his approach is similar to that of analogue film.
Photoshop is only used to remove dust spots and create borders. Except for the above, the entire workflow starts and ends in the raw converter, where only colours and tones are slightly manipulated.
