#NSFW Redlight District by Antonio Paradiso (Exclusive)

I have more than one camera at home, let’s say that when I want to devote myself more carefully, I use a 1979 Giapponesina, a yashica fx3 super 2000, a completely mechanical camera. This speaks a lot about all those people who invest loads of money in photographic equipment without being aware that emotions cannot be created, not even in post production.

I’m dying to know how have you decided to shoot this nude loving series in the first place. Is this going to be the newest Antonio’s signature style?

It was a bit random, a little planned. Then one thing leads to another. The important thing for me is to maintain a constant dialogue, if there is an active communication we avoid photographs that we call “artificial”, it is important to be at ease to transmit something, both behind and in front of the lens. in reality in this series we are not in any special place, the sofa of my room flanked by my sweet red lighthouse have created the right situation with the right atmosphere.
I do not think that this series marks a novelty for me and for my path, actually I have already photographed female bodies although I never published these works, either because I suffer from low self-esteem, or because I never considered them to be good enough or also because I did not believe them to be in line with the path started with the alias ” Badthrowup.” Badthrowup is not Antonio Paradiso but probably Antonio is: Badthrowup.

Nude photography or street photography? Why?

“Humans are pieces of art”. Nude photography has always fascinated me and probably was one of the things that brought me closer to analogue photography in itself. During the course of my experiences, however, I preferred to work on something else. Most of the nude photographs are empty, and by empty I mean that we often find ourselves in front of ass and nipples without vibrations and sensations. In Italy we call it “win easy”. On top of this we have to consider that we are in the period of the boom of this phenomenon and therefore there is a lot of rubbish that multiplies day by day. I will continue to propose a medley of faces, roads, tits and raw shadows to fuck your standards.

Are you a shy person?

I always try to create my comfort zone wherever I am, however when I cannot create it then obviously it is the case I am shy but people do not realize it.

The greatest experience you had since starting photography.

More than experience, one of the works I’m most fond of is the last collaboration with my friend Toto Ronzulli (Peppoccio) aka Truemantic for his self-titled debut album of which I edited photography. After a year of work I’m really proud and happy to announce the release of the TRUEMANTIC album. An album to which I have collaborated actively dedicating mind and heart to the project that I immediately felt mine. In the disc there are different nuances, between lo-fi and glitch, minimal and “maximal” electronic. The atmospheres is intimist and obscure, a cinematic work that looks at the melodies and its infinite repetition, developing a dark-dramatic but also romantic mantra.
Later I will talk in detail of this, for the moment I leave the link to purchase and listen on: Bandcamp | Spotify

What is something we do not know about you?

I have a fucking needy cat ( very needy se fucking nn puoi usarlo) its name is Novio.

What do you want to be remembered for?

I think that everyday we do something we will be remembered for by our closest people, for all the other people i think it is yet to come. It’s a matter of time.

Still can't tell exactly my origins because of my Chinese eyes. I love romance. Cartoons and music. Cultartes. Hate fish roe. From the bottom of my heart.
