Originally from Italy, Paolo Rubini began developing his passion for photography while travelling through different countries in his early twenties. During that time he was fascinated by the opportunity to capture elements of different cultures, as well as moments of beauty hidden in everyday life. Later, he moved to a more personal and intimate approach that explored the possibility of composing images with a deeper conceptual impact, reflecting his own aesthetic, emotional landscape, and visual art influences more clearly.
Before moving to Vancouver, where he currently lives, Rubini attended photography studies in Mexico City and New York. He now continues to develop his style, shooting freelance primarily in North America and focusing on conceptual, urban, environmental, portraiture, and still life photography.
His current work explores the relationships that people form with their environment through the use of panning and long exposure techniques to capture time, motion, and urban feelings.
When travelling, Rubini still enjoys capturing the essence of different cultures with a photo-journalistic approach that borrows from the aesthetic of the film photo-reporter Masters.
Rubini is currently a featured artist of Time Frame Gallery and was previously in the roster of Fast Frames, and Davie Art.
His latest projects were exhibition in Vancouver and include Stillness in Motion, Cafe Rustico Galleria, 2015; At the seaside, Melriches Cafe, 2015; Pulse with Life, Lab Art Show, 2016; Art In The City, 2016; Light paints, RAWK: Vancouver; and Lab Art Show, 2017. His new project Hands On is in progress.
