The author: Lucio Tolar
Born in Gorizia in 1971, as a boy he showed a keen interest in nature that, from the 1990s also saw him become its protagonist through his approach to photography. Technical studies, photographic shooting and composition and the development of an unusual aesthetic and artistic character quickly led to him becoming one of the leading lights in natural history photography in Friuli Venezia Giulia. His photographs of forests and trees have been chosen by the Regional Forest Service for several national exhibitions and educational activities. He has exhibited and published his photos in publications and nature websites, developing a unique style in which his combining of technical rigour and artistic sensibility have become his strong point.
