“David Aimone’s images reflect on the very essence of human life. His is an exploration between his own personal and intimate relationship with his self—in body and mind—and his interaction with forms in the visible world.
A reminder of Hemingway’s man versus man, man versus nature, man versus himself—Aimone’s intimate portraits allow the viewer to experience the photographs’ inherent narrative content. With a soft pictorial approach and a strong sense of romanticism, Aimone’s images depict his quest for and fascination with beauty, whether he is portraying the figure in its natural form, or so-called inanimate forms in nature.”
—Adriana Teresa Letorney, Founder, www.visura.com

“My works combine and synthesize modern photographic technology with very traditional tools and techniques to achieve a very personal and contemporary photographic synthesis.”
