Mario Ciampi (Florence, 1951) is a graduate of architecture. At the start of the 1980s, he decided to dedicate himself to photographing architecture and interiors especially. He has worked for Casa Vogue, Casamica, Case da Abitare and Casa Vogue Antiques. For Sotheby’s, he effected the photographic documentation of the interiors of important historic homes before the sale of their contents.
The desire for a broader audience for his images led him in 2003 to open a publishing house in London called Verba Volant. He produced about 20 books for the publishing house, mainly concerning the hime, garden and contemporary art. Among these are two volumes on classic Italian interiors and a book resulting from the visit to about 50 contemporary Chinese artists and the documentation of their places of work. Since 2009, he has documented new shops for the Prada group, photographing about 80 shops around the world.
Since 2012, he has also been involved in the press campaigns of the Flexform sofa company.

Aline Perier lives and works in Lyon.
This eclectic and versatile photographer - she likes to refer to herself as being more “off-road” – began working at age 25 following a reporter among the nomad tribes of Niger. This was the first of many journeys for Aline Perier. She prefers big open spaces like Alaska, the Sahara and Australia. Aline’s photography is natural and instinctive not overly sophisticated or full of flourishes. She takes inspiration from the works of Cartier Bresson and Salgado, embracing day-to-day life in all of its various facets - from travel to design to architecture to gastronomy (her great passion). Her work has been featured in many publications and she has worked with all kinds of specialized publications. Her works have been shown in various personal and collective shows in France and abroad.
Roberto Mascaroni lives and works in Milan. He began his photographic career at the historic Foto Saporetti agency, renowned among art galleries and artists. He has collaborated with numerous contemporary artists, such as Kengiro Azuma, Guttuso, Franco Francese, Lazzaro, Ettore Sottsass and Roberto Sambonet. He has also been commissioned by various civic museums, such as Castello Sforzesco, Museo di Milano, Museo del Risorgimento, Museo della Scala and GAM. As a result, he inevitably developed a passion for art and its manifold expressions, particularly for photography’s realistic and surrealist “impressions.” The seemingly cold and bloodless details of daily life, like an office, a cigarette butt, or a crack in the wall, take on spiritual meaning and every face and body is imbued with magnetic charm.
Hufton + Crow are dedicated to creating inspiring and striking photographs of contemporary interior and exterior architecture around the world.
As two experienced photographers with complementary skills and competitive characters they offer a unique service because they work as a team – either both simultaneously photographing one project, or by each providing input, critiques and direction of the others work. The outcome is a passionate attention to detail, the most creative approach possible and a reliable and professional service. Above all, it results in beautiful photographs that show buildings at their best – images that describe architecture within the built environment.
