Chess Portraits by Francesco Ridolfi
- By: Nate Kay
Francesco Ridolfi is a portrait photographer who normally shoots for advertising and editorial clients like Rolling Stonge, Auchan, and Louis Vuitton. Born and raised in Bologna, Italy, he now splits his time between Brussels, Milan and Bologna working on a variety of projects. One of his latest has been a realistic chess portrait series. Using the same model for one chess piece, Francesco dresses them up both as the black and white character for the session. Queen, King, Bishop, Knight, Rook and Pawn were all included and the results turned out quite well.
