Welcome to Carlo Remi's site
Carlo Remi was born in the administrative area of San Miniato, and still lives there, working in the tanning industry. In the early 1970s, he became deeply involved in amateur photography, joining a photographic club which he still attends. He has taken part in photographic competitions at national level and displayed his work in collective exhibitions as well as a personal exhibition entitled "Conciapelli", receiving considerable recognition. This art of creating images through a lens led him to take up another type of visual expression: he was able to create a face and an expression from a piece of material, in this case leather. The examples illustrated here are entirely hand-made, shaped with craftman's tools and finished with natural products. They can be recognised as animal-like faces inspired by imagination, masks with expressions of suffering and sorrow, which have always held a place of particular fascination in the history of man.
