Tommaso Fiscaletti (1981) è nato a Cattolica (RN) ed è originario di Pesaro. 

Vive tra Cape Town e Milano lavorando con la fotografia e il video.

Nel 2001 inizia a realizzare progetti fotografici tra il Nord Africa e l'Est Europeo, lavorando costantemente anche in studio. Esperienze entrambe determinanti per delineare il suo  approccio all'immagine, muovendosi nel confine tra la realtà e la rappresentazione di essa. 

I suoi lavori nascono dalla volontà di raccontare l'uomo, affrontando tematiche esistenziali come le relazioni familiari, la memoria e il rapporto  con la natura. Realizza anche progetti sotto il nome di LeaFlood affiancandosi ad Alice Marrollo. Dal 2004 il suo lavoro è stato esposto presso gallerie, istituzioni pubbliche e private (Museo Santa Maria della Scala Siena, Palazzo della Permanente Milano, Nappe dell'Arsenale Venezia, Museo Cubo Unipol Bologna, ecc..) e ha ottenuto vari riconoscimenti. Ha tenuto workshop e master di fotografia in varie sedi, tra cui IED (Istituto Europeo di Design) di Milano.

 

 

Tommaso Fiscaletti (1981) was born in Cattolica (RN) Italy, he comes from Pesaro. 

He lives in Cape Town SA, working with photography and Video. 

In 2001 he started to create projects between North Africa and Eastern Europe, working constantly in studio as well. Both experiences will be decisive to sketch out his personal approach to the image, moving on the boundary between reality and representation.

His works stems from the will of telling the Man about existential subjects, such as family relationships, the memory and the connection with the nature. He works also on projects under the name Leaflood, partnering with Alice Marrollo.

On 2013 he decided to move from Milan to Cape Town and this has been a crucial step in his personal poetry for the interweaving of cultures and intense stories as the central elements. 

Since 2004 his work has been exhibited on publics, privates galleries and institutions (Santa Maria della Scala Museum Siena, Palazzo della Permanente Milan, Nappe dell'arsenale Venice, Cubo Museum Unipol Bologne, etc..), obtaining several rewards. He taught  photography at IED (European institute of Design) in Milan.
