Born in Kobe in 1950, Ricci Mondo is been living both in France and Japan, while working as a photographer and fashion designer.
Taking picture has always been Ricci's favorite medium of creation, starting in his early age with analog then digital. During his graduation at Kyoto University of Arts, his main working area was the dark room to play with chemicals in the aim of obtaining lights treatments and paper. But Ricci got frustrated by analog restrictions and leaved his experiments apart of his photographing work.
With the boom of digital photography, Ricci Mondo was able to experiment again with retouching and go deeper with treatments, playing with colors to find a deeper understanding of every shoot. He discovered lights hidden in the dark and how he can draw colors and lights from objects.
