Riccardo La Valle (b. 1987) is a young Italian photographer based in Milan, Lombardia, Italy. He began his journey in photography during his university years, and soon after it became a full-time job. Riccardo is purely self-taught and the kind of photography he likes best is portrait in all its forms. He believes that having to explain photography, would deprive of its charm, preventing our minds from getting lost in observing in a spontaneous and sincere manner of what is ahead of us. Some of the artists he admires are Tim Walker, Paolo Roversi, Roberto Ferri, Ellen Jewett and Masskull Lasserre.
