“The great culture of his ancestors can be traced in any work of this Italian master. His calm and confident personal position helps create fascinating artworks in series devoted to the great people and their works, as well as in lighter chamber compositions. The master’s images in black-and-white technique, sometimes supplemented with hand coloring, are full of elegant moderate expression, which has become a well-known manner of the author, especially if the works are printed on paper made in Amalfi using old-time technologies.
Enzo Rosamilia’s artworks perfectly fit both museum and home interiors. They give the latter some chamber aestheticism filled with archetypes, beloved symbols and timeless beauty. So I can only exclaim: “Bravo, maestro! Maestro, bravo!!!”
“An amazing personality, a legendary person who supported our magazine from the first days of our acquaintance, helped us position as an international format edition. Enzo Rosamilia’s talent surprised us. And the photographic picture of our editor-in-chief made in his unique technique was presented at the exhibition ‘Reflections’ in Italy.”
“It’s a real honor for me to own the artworks of Enzo Rosamilia – a great artist and my friend.”
“The work of the photo artist Enzo Rozamilia, with my participation, is now presented at his exhibition in Lithuania (Siauliai). It will take place from April 20 till May 16. I’ve never had an experience hanging like this on the wall))) I am very pleased that the master chose me for his collection ‘Reflections’.”
“I have been inspired many times by the wonderful world of surrealist works by the Italian photographer Enzo Rosamilia, his works are like a waterfall of emotions created by the artist’s powerful feelings!”
“Enzo Rosamilia can even depict poetry through his artworks.”
“My house interior is decorated with Enzo Rosamilia’s works from the series “Beyond” and the work “La Rosa” made on Amalfi paper using the author’s secret technique. These are very deep works, having their own history. When you admire them, the whole world is open for you.”
“When I come home, tired after work, I can cheer myself up looking at Enzo Rosamilia’s works. I get positive emotions from them.”
“I’m happy. My live picture has arrived! “Reflected temptations” or “Seduzioni riflesse”. The one made in the mysterious “reflected in the water” technique by the famous Italian photographer Enzo Rosamilia. Oh my God, how beautiful it is… On a real canvas, 60×90, warm and sensual. Thank you, dear Master!”
“In my house I have several works from the series “Through Mirrors: Chekhov” and one work from “Beyond”. This complex, black-and-white color palette of Enzo Rosamilia’s works appeals to me as a photographer. I think there is a lot to learn from this Italian photographer.”
“You meet him and feel his thoughtfulness, scrupulousness in preparing for his work. Then you get to know him as an inventor and alchemist. Enzo Rosamilia, born in 1955, comes from Auletta (Salerno). When a child, he used mortar and forest grasses to play different games under an improvised shed. Later, the older brothers suggested that he contacted the paper mills of the town of Amalfi, where he could buy special sheets of rough, unprocessed paper to paint on them with watercolors and draw up invitations to a wedding, christening or graduation, which his older brother Antonio, then a ceremony photographer with his own studio, offered as an “all inclusive” package. His brother was his first teacher, the one “in whose camera obscura life appeared on a simple sheet of paper”. Today Antonio is no longer with him.
In 1976 he began experimenting with printing on Amalfi paper while studying at the Salerno Lyceum of Fine Arts (where he teaches now) and then at the Academy of Fine Arts. He may seem like a retro artist. His love to atrtistic craftwork, paper mills and the land of water, old machines and the Mills Valley make us think of Provence and the village of Vaucluse, famous thanks to Petrarch. Who could think of using this paper (which is more like canvas or cloth), before or after him, to make his photographs so different from all others? So, the future, uniqueness. What inspires him? It’s too difficult to teach this technique at schools. It takes too much effort.”
