My name is Didier Barontini, I'm twenty-three years old and I'm from Rome, Italy, I'm an artist.
I found my way of expression through photography and my big passion for sports. I'm able to do it thanks to every single sport's shape.
During my childhood I tried different sports to calm down my hyperactivity, I've never liked to be still. After a bachelor in product design I met photography by chance and I decided to make it my life style. Thanks to it I'm traveling more and I'm pushing myself out of my comfort zone, always making new experiences and exploring what I don't know yet; I found this feeling in sports and in the athletes who challenge themselves with the aim of improving, so in my pictures I try to immortalize passion, determination, sacrifice, effort. I felt adrenaline for the very first time when I jumped off a cliff in Ischia, and from that moment I've never stopped looking for that feeling.
