Alessandro d'Urso

Hi, I am Alessandro d’Urso, an Italian photographer living between Italy and Spain and founder of BottegaDurso. Before you go on, I’d like to tell you a few words about myself, just to make this NFT world a little less anonymous and impersonal.

I have collaborated with dozens of the world’s most famous magazines, shooting covers  in over 15 countries. 

I have worked with celebrities and international artists such as Brigitte Nielsen, Bjork,Patty Smith, Pat Metheny, David Sylvian, Blondie, Luciano Pavarotti, Vasco Rossi, Paolo Conte, Miles Davis, Pino Daniele and many others.                                                                                                        In 30 years of experience as a photographer I have seen and done everything, having the chance to travel the world and make reportages in Palestine, China, Japan, Thailand,Brazil, Nepal. I am always looking for something new and exciting, which is why in my spare time. I am involved in one of the most important European animation festivals and also I cook delicacies. 

Welcome to
