Domingo Milella is a well-known Italian photographer. His epic contemporary landscapes reflect an age-old concern – of how man and landscape coexist.

For the past ten years, the 31-year-old Italian photographer and  been charting man’s imprint on earth, directing his camera lens at his chosen subjects – caves, tombs, ancient sites and hieroglyphs, cities, homes and cemeteries – and capturing the points at which architecture and civilization meet nature, to breath-taking effect.

He was born in Bari, 1981. He has studied photography at the School of Visual Arts, New York (2005, BFA). His project has been developing over the course of the last 9 years, focusing on documentation, an esthetical catalogue of “the human landscape as it is”. Photography becomes the medium through which to present a landscape to the viewer, a medium to question the landscape itself. Observation as the main action to reformulate and encourage all what’s given in modern dialectics. Observation as the desire to reformulate the most banal of our categories: “the I”, “the other” and the world outside.

Milella has worked with Massimo Vitali and Thomas Struth has been an influential mentor. Since 2001, he has been developing his landscape project. Milella has exhibited at Brancolini Grimaldi (Rome and London), Tracy Williams, Ltd. (New York), Foam photography museum (Amsterdam), the Venice Biennale and Les Rencontres d’Arles.

The artist currently lives and works between Bari and New York.
