Cosimo Cella was born in Italy in 1986, he didn't pick up a camera at young age...instead he picked up a brush and started to paint.
Alongside his production as painter Cosimo has always nourished and cultivated a deep passion for cinema and also photography.
After studying art in Milano, where he has always lived, the passion for photography started to take a bigger role in Cosimo's life and become his prominent means of expression.
Cosimo Cella now lives and works in Paris.
"Biographies are very cold, very impersonal, all facts thus I want to say something personal.
To the best of my current abilities I do not want to not show what I see.
It might seem impossible, a paradox but this is really the sole true of my work. -Cosimo Cella"
