More Than Words
My calling card is a camera, one that opens doors to the unexpected, revealing the magnificent characteristics of humanity. It brings me into ‘off main street’ small urban spaces, full of inherent beauty, and helps me start conversations that translate into a personal portrait of people’s surroundings and lives.
More Than Words is a series of photographs that invite the viewer into the conversation to discover and reinterpret their own idea of beauty and humanity.
In this, the first part of the project, my focus is on the gracefulness of spaces and structures in the southern New Hampshire towns where I live, work, and photograph. As the project continues, it will grow from a conversation about sense of place to reframe itself as a photographic expression of the relationships I have formed with the people who, along with me, call these surroundings home.
Anthony Attardo is a Southern New Hampshire based emerging photographer. He is passionate about using his camera to illustrate the essence of the day to day found in small urban spaces, and as a means to bring cultures and lives together.
From an early age, the conversation at the Attardo family dinner table wasn’t about food, it was treating people with dignity and respect no matter where they were in life, what they looked like, or where they came from. Today, this powerful lesson is the driving force of Anthony’s photography. His photographs tell stories from a personal perspective, and his images reveal a belief that grace and humility are the greatest common denominators.
Anthony’s photographs have been exhibited at the Vermont Center for Photography in Brattleboro, VT, the Brush Art Gallery in Lowell, MA, and the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA.
He has studied at the New England School of Photography, the New Hampshire Institute of Art, and the Photography Atelier at the Griffin Museum of Photography.
