Michele Salati is a nomad, a thinker, a researcher; an Italian who left home to travel the world and leave his roots behind. He studied advertising at the NABA University in Milan before embarking on a career working for major agencies in Milan, Rome, Barcelona, Zurich, Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai. His work as a Creative Director has received much acclaim and peer recognition.
However, he curiosity never rests. His hyperactive spirit has pushed him into photography to explore the special relationship between image and subject.
Currently living in Hong Kong, here he shares five previously unpublished images.
