Domenico Dolce launched in Milan his longtime project, the photography book Campioni.
The book gathers 67 portraits of young soccer players, who have posed in front of the lens of Domenico Dolce. For each player Domenico Dolce has created a story that turned him into a character. The white backdrop and the simple and essential style of the images reveal the personality of each player.
“I strongly believe in this book.With my images I wanted to pay tribute to the strength and innocence of these players and at the same time I wanted to realize one of my dreams: to take photographs.” - Domenico Dolce
In Campioni there is a strong connection between who is behind, and who is in front of the lens: a game of glances and silences, striking or barely perceptible gestures, and of words that are shouted or whispered.
