Artist Johanna Thea – featured in the 4th portrait of the opening carousel – has attended many portrait sessions in her career between London and Los Angeles. Still, Johanna finds that “Rino’s portrait session was like no other I have encountered. In part due to the level of disclosure between us. For in the same manner as children converse without self consciousness, so too did we.”
An emotional connection naturally unfolded in front of the camera. Our session to explore new horizons was a gentle and empowering experience, culminating in a deep sense of wellbeing. Ultimately leading me to feel very grateful for having been part of it.

With Stefania Cannone we are working on a long-term, portrait-based creative project:
Each session is unique.
Discovering that the outcome of a session is radically different from what we were expecting in terms of expressions and gestures is a truly liberating feeling, like a revelation.

It was a great session. Rino helped me in becoming more and more aware of my facial expressions and, as a result, I started considering different casting types for my acting career.

I was privileged to work with Rino. His work is of an astonishing quality. Not surprised that his easy confidence translated into the perfect atmosphere to work in. I do feel lucky to have been part of the highest level of photography.

Rino, thank you SO MUCH for your incredible work, not to mention patience and stacks of positive energy during the photoshoot and editing process! You really did grasp what we are about, our message, and we’re most delighted and grateful.
