Porn is boring.

-GASM is not.

Corrado Dalcò – Mixing analog and digital photography to push the established limits

How would you define your style in photography?

Well, let’s start with a difficult question immediately 🙂

I have never considered mine a real style, even though it is actually the style that distinguishes one photographer from another.
I believe my style is a set of styles, or a set of inspirations and passions that have always fueled my creative research.

Someone called me irreverent, but I don’t always fell like that.

There’s a hint of provocation and experimentation that is always present within my images, for it is my desire to always push myself a little beyond established limits.

Why did you choose photography as the art form to express yourself?

Of course it wasn’t an immediate choice. I come from an art school concerning my educational background. I first learned how to draw comics, then I tried to be an illustrator, but with very little results.

With photography I’ve found my dimension.

I managed to get what I wanted, certainly not with small efforts, and coming from the analogical world the (economic and not economic) commitments to start this job were not few.

Then I discovered a real world, from instant photography to commercial photography, and I started to merge these worlds, these styles and understood that there was so much to say.

 

Which are some of the photography projects or shoots you’re most proud of?

There are several, but perhaps the one I’ll never forgot was “My Home is the Sea“.

It was a particular period of my life, I loved shooting in Polaroid and this was the first time they let me do what I wanted. It was fantastic, and even though I repeated the experience of shooting in Polaroid several times, it never has been like the first time.

If you could shoot with any character, from celebrities to historical, who would your model be?

How about the naked Pope 🙂 ?

You also work as a Photography teacher. What do you enjoy the most about teaching?

Teaching is beautiful.

I especially like comparing myself to the guys who are beginners and want to learn from you, so I try to create a sort of interpersonal exchange, where I share my experience from an unconventional eye, spurring kids to do things that are always different and this gives me back an always fresh view of things.

I am very happy to have joined this teaching experience and I would like to learn more and more about it.

We’ll see.

 

What is your definition of eroticism?

Well, for starters I wouldn’t define myself as an erotic photographer. It is difficult for me to define my photography, so to also define eroticism and how the two mix together is not so simple.

I believe it is something that comes from within, it might be anything, and, if you like, viceversa anything might have a trace of eroticism.

I usually prefer having my images speak for me.

Social Media platforms are a huge opportunity for creatives to showcase their work and get noticed. Do you have any personal preferences concerning social media?

Not all that glitters is gold.

Meaning that there are pros but also many cons against sharing your images online as a photographer.

Of course, Instagram is the absolute master in terms of sharing and getting reach, even though I preferred tumblr before it lapsed. Flickr always had a great following but has not been able to take advantage of the good moment.

So I would say undoubtedly Instagram is the main platform I work with, besides of course pro sites like -GASM, where you don’t have to submit to horrible censorship laws, to which I’m making a merciless war.
Other platforms are useless, in my opinion. 

What would your advice be to a young photographer starting to share his or her work online?

Like all things, do things well. Don’t be in a hurry to share, don’t saturate the media with thousands of photos. Try to plan ahead and show your style even in your social profile.
