Modern Portraits of Old Craftsmanship . Be Inspired

February 19, 2013 separator be inspired

Alessandro Venier, an Italian photographer and videographer, has invited us into the workshops of artisans keeping alive the tradition of handcrafted goods and small-scale production.
About the series, Venier says,

These images tell stories of those people who continue works, searching for the unique product. This book talks about those people, who I found after a long journey during more than a year. Portraits of them in their workspaces, where the final customer usually does not have access. Women and men, witnesses and architects of a world that, despite the difficulties, and the modernization continues to exist. A reality that today more than ever shows us the way to an innovative generational shift, looking to the future without forgetting the past.

This last one reminds me of a couple of my friends who have an ever-growing home-brew hobby. I won’t be a bit surprised if it looks like this one day!
