Omar Sartor is an Italian photographer based in Milan who specialises in Landscape and Interior Design photography. He has a love for travel and exploring the different terrains and landscapes that the world has to offer, as well as the connections between them and their inhabitants.
This is where his photography journey started, before progressing to include interior architecture further down the line, but Omar describes his photography journey as “long, fluid and ongoing” leaving it open to evolve and change more in the future. Photography is a lifestyle for him as much as it is a job, approaching it as an opportunity to ‘research and explore’ in order to understand more about himself, his environment and his journey in life.
“I study the link created between an object’s or landscape’s physical manifestation (shapes, colors, textures) and its substance or essence. I believe this interaction is not so much subject to a certain fashion, style or trend, but to archetypal principles that live inside of us.” – Omar Sartor
The clever use of the angles, shapes and contrast of colours that can be found in his work really evoke the imagination of the viewers to make their own connections to the rooms and landscapes presented to them. He has a way of making everyday objects such as sofas and desks part of an aesthetically pleasing art piece.
So why does Omar Sartor shoot with Phase One? In his own words “I use a Phase One because it’s the most complete medium format system in the world, always offering the absolute leading edge of available technology.”
“In terms of lenses, I’m in love with my Schneider Kreuznach 80mm Blue Ring. It’s very light and compact, with an incredibly accurate rendition. It’s about as close as you can get to what the human eye sees.”
