Anthony Boccaccio: A Series of Contrasts

Anthony Boccaccio began his career with National Geographic Magazine. His work has taken him to over 30 countries in as many years. Like most photographers, he is a series of contrasts... He is probably most known for his beautiful travel shots, yet while working with the human figure, his sensitivity rivals that of the great painters.

Indeed, his artistic life began as a young painter trained in the classical manner. He has studied classical piano at the Eastman School of Music and plays bluegrass banjo.

He has taught photography at the college level and has studied classical sculpture in Rome, Italy.

“Boccaccio is a straight shooter. You always know where you stand with him. He speaks his mind and reacts to life on a visceral level. He is not afraid to take risks in his photography. He follows his instincts and works constantly to be better. We think of him as part Ansel Adams and part Hemingway.” - Paul Ambrose, Desert Dolphin Agency
