Emilio Cresciani

Emilio Cresciani is an artist and freelance photographer and lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Emilio graduated from Sydney College of the Arts in 2012.

Emilio was a finalist in the Chippendale New World Art Prize and the Agendo Art Prize in 2015, the 2010 National Youth Self Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery in Australia and his work was featured in the People Gallery, National Geographic Magazine Photo Contest in 2010.

Emilio works as a photographer for several well-known architects including Hector Abrahams Architects, and works as an assistant to leading Australian architecture photographer Richard Glover.

Emilio's artworks explore redundancy and urban change. His interest is in objects, structures, buildings and the urban landscape, and in particular the increasing number of ‘non-places’ that fill our environment; waste centres, derelict service stations, road works, car parks and abandoned factories.

Beauty is found in these places of repulsion, neglect or obsolescence.
