When he was little, Matteo Suffritti loved to play with a Kodak Disc his father gave him, wandering through the streets of the outskirts of Milan. Subsequently his graphic design studio and advertising technique led him to manipulate the first reflex and consequently to learn the basics of the darkroom. Today he lives in Milan, works as designer in a photochemical etching industry and loves to experiment continuously.
