Maurizio Marcato receives an honourable mention at the MIFA 2015 in the category Architecture/Interiors
Verona, 3 November 2015 – The international photographer Maurizio Marcato has received an honourable mention at the Moscow International Photo Awards 2015 (MIFA), in the category Architecture/Interiors, with a photograph taken for the communication campaign of the renowned Italian furnishing company Falper.
MIFA is a prestigious photography competition, held yearly, whose mission is to recognise, award and promote talented photographers from all over the world, and to introduce them to the creative community in Russia.
“My primary aim is to take photographs with unique characteristics, shots that are invariably out of the ordinary. This is a complex process, made up of numerous steps, each one of which requires the utmost attention and maximum experience. Only this kind of precise approach is able to guarantee outstanding results, able to live up to my own expectations and those of the client. Nothing is left to chance in the image produced; an image is no different from a written text, with all the information it contains”, says Maurizio Marcato.
“My photographic projects are the fruit of a painstaking study of the themes to be covered and the market the client operates in and wishes to make an impact on. First of all, it is essential to bear witness to events, to tell a story, to follow trends and tune into contemporary tastes. It is important to combine a passion for the photographer’s art and an awareness of the huge opportunities the medium offers: it’s a question of synergy with the camera, with the digital process and with a properly coordinated team”, concluded the multi-award winning international photographer.

In 1979 he opened his own photographic studio in Verona, specialising in consulting services and image promotion, capturing the essence of corporate and public interest communication .
