About Mario DiGirolamo
Mario DiGirolamo is a physician and scientist who has pursued his artistic muse with a camera for over 60 years. His images have been gathered over many years of exploration and meeting photographic challenges. His current portfolio encompasses multiple perspectives and techniques.
In 1994 DiGirolamo hosted his first solo exhibition at the Shatten Gallery of Emory University in Atlanta. Since then, he has participated in numerous other shows, solo exhibits and competitions. During 2001 DiGirolomo exhibited both black and white images of Italy and abstract prints at the Lamar Dodd School of Art Gallery at the University of Georgia in Athen, GA. His work is collected and shown both publicly and privately; this includes five images at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
His black and white images, capturing the simple beauty of everyday life, feature the people and places of his native Italy, of Europe and of other Countries around the world visited during his frequent travels. One year in New York City produced a portfolio of urban American images. In recent years DiGirolamo has developed a series of color abstracts which highlight the same sense of linear movement, textures, and balance of masses that make his Monochrome images effective.
DiGirolamo has published two books of black and white images: Sole e Ombra/Sun and Shadow (2000), and Visione (2015).
