About the Book
Through a technique that grew out of an accident, Luciano Fileti captures something more than the artifice and posturing of the runway; he produces spectral images that transcend the seasonal shifts in fashion that he was initially commissioned to capture.
New York based photographer, Luciano Fileti was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. He began his career in photography while still a student of architecture and, upon re-ceiving a degree in Architecture and Urbanism from the Federal University of Santa Catarina in 1999, Fileti moved to New York where he worked as a freelance photographer on both advertising and editorial assignments. In 2004, he was presented with the opportunity to expand his experience with studio photography when he was offered a position as an assistant to legendary photographer Irving Penn. Fileti worked with Mr. Penn until 2007 when he returned his focus exclusively to his own commercial and artistic pursuits.
