Beautiful imperfections

By Alessandro Albert, portrait photographer

Turin, Italy

I was born in Turin 1965. I started taking photos around the age of 12. Over the years, photography became my profession and I specialised in portraits and personal artistic projects. I have two children. I do not enjoy travelling much and I still live in Turin.

New and perfect things don't seem to have a past. I live in a courtyard in a space that was once a carpenter's workshop. The courtyard is rather run down, like the façades of the houses looking on to it. I like this about it; it's an authentic and sincere place. At certain times of day the sunlight shines on the worn and paint‑peeled walls revealing their imperfections. It's a living testament to past times and lives.
