Danilo Moroni (ITA, 1987) is a Sicilian born artist based in Madrid.
He earned a degree in arts and dance and as a professional dancer worked, touring internationally, for companies and choreographers such as Grand Theatre de Genève, Alias Guilherme Bothelo, Alexander Ekman, Hofesh Shechter. Danilo grew up in a photographer’s family and he first picked up a film camera at the age of eight when he started photographing around the Sicilian streets. During his trips performing around the world he continued taking pictures as a way to connect and discover new places and people.
After starting his own photographic practice from scratch, five years ago, with no formal training, he has developed into a photographer with his own style appreciated by clients around Europe.
Danilo’s work ranges photography, film making, light designing and performance making.
His work is creative, visceral and with a unique style. In his imagery, he combines classical elements with an artistic personal touch. Danilo has a strong preference for classic subjects, such as as portraits and nudes, and he often combines those with influences from performing arts and cinema to create striking images with a strong storytelling element.
In 2015 he started working with Matthew’s Bourne New Adventures & Re:Bourne for whom he has been producing all imagery and campaigns of its New Adventures Choreographer Award. In 2017 Danilo starts collaborating with English National Ballet for Dance Journeys creating a series of images and short films screened at Sadler's Wells Theatre the iconic venue for dance in London.
In April 2017 he started to co-direct a new visual dance piece about dyslexia called Mentally Zero in collaboration with Kate Mummery.
In January 2018 Danilo self-published Interferencias (chapter I), a new fine-art book connecting the raw universe of the human body and movement with the concept of time and a strong anthropological element.
