Visual Interview: Italian Photographer Francesco Sambati

By Phoebe Barrett - 2 min read

Visual Interviews is an ongoing EyeEm series where we get to know artists and photographers through textless Q&A's. Today we are featuring the work of Italian photographer, Francesco Sambati.

Inspired by the light, land and sea of his hometown Lecce, Francesco creates beautiful and simple compositions on Polaroid. His dreamlike use of light conveys a quietness and a sense of peace, alternating between beauty and melancholy.
