Roberto has a degree in Fine Arts (1995) and studied several specialized courses in photography and new technologies. Since then, he has dedicated his artistic activity around the image. He has published five photobooks: ‘Samizdat’ (2022), ‘Two Thousand Words’ (2021), ‘Fascism + Apocalyptic’ (2020), ‘Antimanifesto’ (2020), ‘War Edition’ (2019) and a monographic book: ‘Entropy’ (2016).

His work has an eminently multidisciplinary character. Photography coexists with manipulated objects and installations to explore different aspects of conflict in relation to identity, the social, the political or within the individual. His photographic work cannot be framed within the realm of reportage although it contains numerous connections with the documental and he frequently focus on themes drawn from the daily press or historical memory. He is most interested in photography as essay, as a tool for reflection and debate. Through each object he creates, he attempts to explore a specific moment in 20th century history as if it were in open dialogue with our present reality, a dialogue with its tensions and confrontations. It is fiction but at the same time documental in nature. Every object that he introduces in the works, props for the protagonists and backgrounds, are rigorously selected originals from the epoch he is dealing with, and as such, are all part of reality and history. These elements add a documentary component which is essential.
