Enrico Salvadori, dramatic figurative drawings

I’m a photographer. For years I’ve been publishing my works on the most important Italian and European male magazines. Mostly, I covered sport. I’ve also been assigned a Nike USA worldwide campaign and collaborated on making images on the world of football for Nike Italy. I shot for racing teams, trying to capture the soul of those who live for speed.


I’ve never been interested in sport news, mine has always been an anthropological, anatomical approach. The face burned by adrenaline, the skin, the veins consumed by the performance.

A primordial voyeurism that I’ve been trying to translate on paper with a pencil. Mine are drawings on spiritual isolation, on physical distance. Tales of individuals in their sought solitude.
