Naples: Luciano Furia

A bio engineer by training, an amateur cook and always in love with photography, as a teenager Luciano Furia started selling photos of classical musicians to magazines. In the past five years he has merged photography with one of his other passions: food!

Building on his personal relationship with star chefs and internationally renowned pizzaiolis, he tries to capture the heat, life, excitement and tension that build up in the kitchens.

He believes that a good food photo is one that makes you …hungry! His photos have appeared in Food&Wine (with several photos accompanying an article by Pulitzer prize winner Jonathan Gold), Australian Gourmet Traveller, New York Times, National Geographic Traveller UK, and in many Italian and international online articles.

He has recently been selected as a finalist at the Pink Lady Food Photography awards 2016 with a picture taken from a book he published in 2015, 'Gli ingredienti di una vita'.
