> BIOGRAPHY

Nicolò Rinaldi is an italian documentary and commercial photographer, founder of LUCID DREAMS creative studio.

After experimenting with landscapes and outdoor photography, he currently has several documentary and street photography works in development, both personal and commissioned. 

In recent years, he has traveled to document the phenomenon of overtourism with a humorous approach, developing his own narrative style characterized by irony and grotesque elements.

In 2023 he started a personal investigation of the relationship between humans and nature, focusing on the impact that anthropogenic infrastructures have on the earth and the surrounding environment.

At the same time, he works in the fashion industry for campaigns, special projects and events.

Is available for commercial and editorial commissions around Italy and beyond.
