Born in 1952 in Italy. Lives and works in Milan.

Vincenzo Castella is known for his specific approach of landscape photography focused on a visual storytelling of the complexity of urban sceneries. His panoramic images of European cities like Turin, Athens, Cologne, and Amsterdam are rich in detail and document the historical past of these cities as well as of the continual modern changes. “Castelli does not especially privilege the eye. From his earliest works halfway through the 'seventies he has eliminated the narrating self, an important moment in his development towards rejecting subjectivity.” Angela Madesani
