Honorable Mention BIFA 2020 Book / Nature
I have decided to devote most of my life to astronomical photography and amateur astronomy and I'll explain why.
Today we can visit the most remote corners of the universe through astronomical photography. Like the great explorers of the past, we will sail into the unknown, from our solar system to the edge of the observable cosmos.
The astrophotography is a path of humility and understanding that teaches us to understand the universe to better understand ourselves and the value of our planet. The cosmos can bring us closer to a better vision of ourselves and the world.
My name is Luca Fornaciari, I live in Italy, I am 36 years old and I deal with photographic and graphic training for work and passion. In the last 9 years I have dedicated myself with great passion to the study of astronomical photography and today I deal with tests for different producers in the world, I organize workshops and courses, dissemination events and activities for children with an astronomical theme.
In 2019 I was awarded in the Italian Parliament for my dissemination activities on astrophotography and I won the first prize in the Abstract category at the Annual Photography Awards.
