Dario’s portraits by wowe

Dario Pegoretti mi ha raccontato che wowe aveva fatto a lui e al Pero alcuni scatti. Tornato a casa a New York gli ha mandato le foto più uno splendido ritratto di Miles Davis.

wowe (Wolfgang Wesener) was born in 1960 in Cologne, Germany. During his studies in Communication Design at the Folkwangschule Essen (1981-84) he photographed for the music magazine Spex. Arriving in New York City in 1984, he assisted Hans Namuth and Evelyn Hofer while capturing New York’s nightlife for Details Magazine. In 1986, he began a twelve-year collaboration taking portraits for the legendary FAZ-Magazin, the weekly supplement to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. He moved to Italy in 1990, continuing to photograph for international magazines and pursuing personal projects. He currently lives in New York City.

The way I look at it...well, the way I look at it is a lot like the way wowe (Wolfgang Wesener) looks at it. Straight up with a twist. wowe is a photographic realist. He takes it as it is, as it comes, as a witness. (Glenn o’Brien )
