“My 28MM project has taught me to tell a coherent story in just one picture and using just one lens,” he says. “I had to overcome my fears to dare to go out on the streets of Manhattan and interact with complete strangers.

You can see more of Tomaso Baldessarini’s work in LFI 5/2017.
Born in Thuringia, Germany, in 1984, the photographer now lives in Berlin. He has been involved in photography since 2009, and completed studies in the medium in 2012. Baldessarini works mostly in a studio, dedicated primarily to portrait photography: he is interested in the unique features of each face rather than in its perfection.
Street photography is his second great passion.
His 1000-copy, limited-edition book 28MM Edition I Manhattan (352 pages, 317 colour photographs 19x30 cm, English/German) is self-published. More
