of Lensini Foto
FATHER AND SON THIS THE PRECIOUS PAIR THAT BINDS THE PAST TO THE PRESENT, TRADITION TO INNOVATION, THE PASSION AND PROFESSIONALISM OF EXPERIENCE, TO THE BOLDNESS AND DETERMINATION OF THE DESIRE TO ALWAYS RENEW. FATHER AND SON IS PRECISELY THE WINNING COMBINATION THAT IS EXPRESSED IN THE SOLIDITY OF THE EXPERIENCE OF THE FATHER FABIO AND IS TRANSLATED INTO THE DYNAMISM AND PASSION OF THE SON ANDREA. BUT TO UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY OF THIS WINNING COMBINATION, WE HAVE TO START VERY FAR BACK....
Photography is an art
It’s about finding extra-ordinary
In an ordinary place
His work became his greatest passion, demonstrating early on his skills as a documentary photographer. A maniac for detail and detail, he cooperates with the medical faculty of the University of Siena with photographic documentation of surgical procedures. With Professor Motolese he perfected the technique for the development of Florangiographies, but numerous are the collaborations with the most esteemed medical clinics: the urology clinic led by Prof. Angelo Acconcia, the Cardiovascular Clinic for heart surgeries with Prof. Grossi, the Ophthalmology Clinic led by Prof. Frezzotti these are just a few examples. But the passion for photography pushes Fabio in search of the “shot” the Author’s one, in 1966 he won the Photographic Competition Award on the Palio promoted by the Tourist Promotion Company, highlighting his ability to capture the magic moment the unrepeatable one, the one that remains in history. A few years later he himself entered history. It was April 8, 1972 when Fabio took the photo of the year documenting the crash of the Andover , a British plane that crashed in Ampugnano during an event. This shot, his shot was published on all the front pages of newspapers around the world and on all television stations. A few years later came the moment of growth, the time came for Fabio to take the reins of the game, with the opportunity to direct from the year 1977 to 1983 the Grassi photo. And it is at this time that a great love begins that of Art photography, of sculptures, paintings, frescoes, the precious treasures of a wonderful land so dear to him. During these years Fabio perfects his technique, takes care of his style, participating in international seminars and reviews (e.g. Kodak seminar professional photographer for Weddings and fashion photography from catalog in Florence, Diploma of participation in the International Photographic Review ” Salsomaggiore Terme) and collecting high-level awards and prizes (City of La Spezia Award for meritorious activity in the field of Art and Culture, appointment of meritorious academician of Salsomaggiore Terme conferred on him as recognition for his activity in the field of photography). But the real turning point for Fabio came in 1984 when he opened his own photography studio, bringing with him the archive of the old workshop: 150,000 black-and-white and color images of Works of Art in the city and other cities of Art in Italy; 10,000 images of the Sienese countryside depicting the most characteristic towns, villages,villas and castles of Siena and Province. This is the treasure that Fabio has collected with his passion and his “sense of art,” a passion and recognized professionalism that is also confirmed by his collaboration with the Superintendence of Artistic and Historical Heritage and the Superintendence of Monuments of Siena and Grosseto for the documentation of Restorations to the cataloging of works of Art found in every church, museum and historic homes. Hence the numerous collaborations with public and private entities of the city such as : Municipality, Opera del Duomo, State Archives, Santa Maria della Scala, Province, Magistrate of Contrade, Tourist Promotion Company and then banks such as Monte dei Paschi di Siena, Banca Toscana, CRAS, San Paolo, Banca di Monteriggioni Antonveneta, BNL etc., for the realization of exhibitions, books, catalogs and guides. Fabio continues to express his “sense of art” by contributing to the realization of numerous editorial works with the most illustrious publishing houses: Federico Motta, Franco Maria Ricci, Amilcare Pizzi, Electa, Arnoldo Mondadori Editore, Nardini Editore, Pacini Editore, Enciclopedia Italiana Treccani these are just a few important collaborations that have led to the realization of prestigious works that enhance culture and art.
