I am an ordinary person with ordinary interests. I just spend part of my time trying to imagine things that can't exist, or could have existed but never did.

(if you leave a comment, please feel free to be critical,
as I'm just a beginner and I need to learn a lot more

(I'd like to post more often. If I don't, it's because of
a killer mix of laziness and selfcensorship)

    "Conoscete la differenza tra il campione e il genio?
    Per capire qualcosa di più darei un'occhiata al photostream di Gianluca o (Rimbaudian), animo creativo, simbolico e fantasticamente astratto nello stesso tempo.
    Attenzione però correte il rischio di rimanere attaccati allo schermo per ore e ore e ore ..."

    "Nelle sue fotografie ho trovato sempre un altro mondo da scoprire, riesce a trovare nel reale un'altra dimensione, soprattutto a far conoscere queste sue visioni ed esplorazioni agli altri."

    "I first came across Rimbaudian in the DeleteMe group, and my first impression was that he seemed to be quite good at cutting criticism :) But, his acidic deleteme comments came to be a little bit comforting, because I always knew that if my photo was shit, he wouldn't pull any punches. I save those comments, like battlefield scars :)

    I don't know much about photography theory, so I hesitate to throw around terms, but his work is surreal. He creates scenes that shouldn't rightfully exist, yet they somehow do on the screen, and there is enough hints of reality there to convince me for a second that my eyes are not deceiving me.

    Wonderful stuff."

    "This guy is awesome. He knows how to get the interesting out of the ordinary. Put him into an all black room with a camera and one month later (hey, art takes time) he will come out with another masterpiece."

    "Gianluca, (Rimbaudian) is a genius artistic photographer.
    His photographs are fuelled by his commanding surreal Imagination.
    He takes you by the hand into his psyche, where he reveals fantastical tales that make you stop in your tracks, disconnects you from the real world and immerses you into his dimension.
    Everything he does is refreshingly creative and inspiring; it is an absolute honor to be able to view what he creates."

    "He has probably the most unique, individual photos on Flickr. I've not seen pics from anyone that can match the creative mind Rimbaudian has.

    "what can i say about ganluca that hasn't been said. His originality, humor, surrealism and manipulations are amazing and provocative. The look and feel of his pictures have a wit and sentimentality that is pure European. But his message is universal.

    He is also a humble soul who takes time out to reply to EVERY comment. Goes to show you the type of person he is.

    The true definition of artist AND integrity."

    "Ok, mi trovo a scrivere il mio primo testimonial della storia di Flickr. Per chi farlo se non per il GENIO della fotografia e del photoshop? Rimbaudian ha delle idee capaci di sbalordire gli occhi, la mente e l'anima, ma la cosa più bella è che Rimbaudian è uno dei Flickeriani più modesti e umili che abbia conosciuto.
    Insomma, definire Rimbaudian un ottimo fotografo è troppo poco: io lo definirei un pazzo artista capace di farci rimanere a bocca aperta ad ogni suo upload.
    Spero, un giorno, di vedere le sue opere pubblicate su una prestigiosa rivista (e, diciamolo, di incontrarlo in ambito pubblicitario).

    Ok, I find myself to write my first one testimonial of the history of Flickr. For who making it if not for the GENIUS of photography and photoshop? Rimbaudian has some ideas able to astound eyes, mind and spirit, but the most incredible thing is that Rimbaudian is one of the most modest and humble Flickeriani i have known. Btw, to define Rimbaudian an optimal photographer is too much little: I would define him as a crazy artist able to make us remaining with opened mouth at every him upload. I hope, a day, to see its works published on a prestigious review (and to meet him in advertising agency). [Sorry for my bad translation!]"

    "A master of composition, a connoisseur of color....Rimbaudian´s shot´s are without a doubt some of the most original images I´ve ever seen.

    Despite their surreal nature, his thoughts can easily be related to......both enjoyable and thought-provoking work!!!"

    Sparkle~and~Fade says:

    "There are very few photographers that are able to elicit a genuine reaction from their viewers - (Rimbaudian) is truly one of them. His photography is like no other I have seen on flickr. He is imaginative, boldly inventive and cleverly surrealist in his composition. Far above the cliche shots; his photostream makes it obvious that he is the master at multiple exposures, symbolism, abstract ideas and storytelling. His shots (especially with multiple exposures) are often both startling and mesmerizing. The colours are always rich and dramatic, making many of the shots seem cinematic. It's always a pleasure to view his stream and I look forward to more and always more! Keep up the good work!"

    "To look at your images is a joy, you are, without doubt, one of the most original photographers posting on flickr, awash in symbolism and just good plain old fashioned fun your work stands out in a sea of sunsets and kitten pics like a diamond ion a pile of gravel.

    Art like this takes talent and an eye for the different and a taste for the surreal - keep sharing with us please :)"
