The project.

Antonio Saba’s “Chasing Beauty”, curated by the famous art critique Vittorio Sgarbi, is a coffee table book featuring the Italian photographer’s most outstanding work of the past few years. Whatever Milan managed several photo shoot productions, offering creative support and attending every stage of the overall production process.


Producing the past.

The location was a wonderful chapel from the 1200s. Our task, therefore, was to reconstruct the style of the time, carefully choosing costume, make-up, hairstyle, accessories and props. A real leap back into the past, or rather a space-time distortion that materialized the Italian Middle Ages in the 21st century.


Beauty and onirism.

Antonio Saba is an Italian photographer now based in Dubai, UAE. In his 30 years career has travelled the world shooting architecture, lifestyle and staged photography for the most important international Luxury hospitality brands and magazines, such as The Peninsula, Waldorf Astoria, Shangri-La, Vogue Italia, Palazzo Versace, among others. Whether on commercial assignments or personal work Antonio is obsessed in the pursuit of Beauty in its several visual forms, and always delivering in his distinct and very recognizable style.
