Formento and Formento
Narrative Cinematic Sensibility
Formento and Formento, this extremely creative and dynamic husband-wife team have made an art of their unique strain of photography.
Exuding an eerie sensuality combined with a narrative cinematic sensibility, the ambiguous nature of the characters and scenarios remind us of David Lynch and Hopper-esque landscapes.
They couldn’t have landed in the photographic landscape at a more opportune moment.
With the enormous interest in their work—success is eminent.
Vogue Italia has been a forerunner and loyal supporter of their work, as well as cutting edge magazines like Aesthetica, Blink, Musee and L’oeil de la Photographie.

They were nominated top finalist to American Vogue’s New Exposure Competition working with Bottega Venetta and Red Digital Camera.
