He started with a SLR (Exakta RTL 1000) and his darkroom in the early 70s. He began using photography in his work in the 80s, as he often contributed to a group of archaeologists in studies of medieval art. He has been working for about 15 years for a Department of the University of Rome and other institutions, traveling all over Italy with his heavy equipment (a field camera 4×5″, a medium format 6×7 cm, etc.). Lots of his photos and drawings were published in several books and scientific reviews.

Alessandro Jazeolla’s main interest is the history of photography and, above all, the relationship between painting and optic devices from the XVI to the XIX century and he uses ancient techniques of pictorial photography and some pinhole cameras.

“I love doing projects, in architecture and in photography. Each project is a challenge.”
