Ugo Grandolini


I capture sensuality and erotism of an unconventional beauty, through imperfections of the body, wicked gestures and by exploring emotions like vulnerability, sadness and rage.

At the beginning I used dolls just to study light – after some time I discovered there is a potential and I started shooting glamour and fine art using them.

The good: they stay put all the time I need, they don't smoke, no need to drink, no pause needed, available 24/7/365
The bad: impossible to connect, it's really difficult to have a conversation (!), I have to spend time to place them in the right position (and not all the positions I need can be done...)

Now I realize how lucky I am as, due to the COVID-19 situation, I will be able to keep working at least to one of my projects!

All my images are available as fine prints on selected Hahnemüle papers.

All my images are available as Fine Art Prints on Hahnemühle Fine Art Premium Photo papers and on Aluminum Dibond composite panel (3 mm).

After gaining confidence with the dolls, I decided it was time to work with real women...
