Riccardo Mongiu, born in Rome, Italy, on December ’68, is an IT engineer and a passionate photographer.
“My first approach with photography was in 2006 for a simple life coincidence and fun. Since 2014 I decided to study, by myself, photography, light and composition at their basics. I’ve been a food photographer for a couple of years from 2014 to 2016 and this part-time work gave me the chance to learn and apply what I was reading and studying. Since 2016 I’ve moved my interests in people photography and portraits, dropping the food, to lean the huge amount of things that wasn’t possible to learn and test with a spaghetti dish. I’m thankful for the lucky chances that I had in the past to portrait restaurants, food and interiors, it gave me the opportunity to fall deeper in love with this incredible and endless world of photography. She Devil is my first project after almost one year of preparation, study and tests.” – Riccardo
