Ernesto Notarantonio was born in Rome in 1967, where he lives and works.
As a child he had only one thing in mind: to draw. He would draw non-stop on school desks, on books, notebooks, paper napkins, in short everywhere. He dreamed of becoming a cartoonist, but life leads him to more rational choices and far from his desires, and he graduates in Engineering.
Curious and restless by nature, in 2007 he began to study photography through a series of training experiences at Officine Fotografiche, and at the same time he attended two courses of creative writing at the Homer school in Rome.
From the outset, he prefers for his personal projects the BNW film, both in the 35 mm format and in the medium format 6 × 6, which he uses for his personal research on architecture and urban landscapes, expanded as a result of other introspective themes related to the art world in general.
In 2008 he began to use the Polaroid films, and it was love at first sight, so much so that over the years he became an important means of expressing his artistic vision, with an increasingly instinctive and artisanal approach to the analog world, trying to design casualness.
He is currently carrying out a personal project, which will be the subject of an exhibition in 2019, on Street Art in Rome, and consists of the creation of mosaics consisting of instant Polaroid or Fuji films, on which manual interventions are performed with different techniques.
