- Luca Di Filippo
Luca won the 2012 International Photography Award for Art Collage with his 'Tate People' Series
Born in Rome and based in London since 2007, Luca worked in the design and branding industry before focusing on commercial and personal photographic projects through which he is constantly experimenting and discovering new points of view on common situations, human behaviour, objects and places. His peculiar creative approach lead him to investigate the potential of real time photography, working close to a contemporary theatre company with whom, in 2010, their first experimental production was staged in Rome during the Romaeuropa Festival - Cantieri Creativi of the European Temps d’Images.
He has been involved in the design industry as creative director for several years. Photography is a huge passion, an inherited love that was a useful tool as a designer and now it is his lifestyle. Always eager to discover new points of view on common situations, human behaviours, objects and places. Lately someone said his work could be called art. Doubtful, he goes on playing around...

Tate People Project is an on going project that starts in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern Gallery in London. It aims to investigate how visitors live the solemnity of contemporary art indoors and how they interact among them. Intriguing photographic sequences emphasise the majestic space of the hall creating a strong contrast with the situations that men, women, and children are experiencing. A story about visitors’ mood, focused on the body language and postures, with timelines of moment of life in a place dedicated to the art, to explore how this kind of spaces impacts on people's state of mind and explore the conflict between mechanical order and creative perception.
