The Night Chronicles: Astrophotography by Ivan Pedretti
Ivan Pedretti has an innate ability to combine vibrant night skies with powerful foregrounds, creating strong narratives under the stars. Based in Italy, Ivan shows us a rare view from our world by using a successful blend of technical expertise and creative compositions for incredibly dramatic astrophotography.
Ivan describes his work below:
“My passion for photography is the natural world: birdwatching and exploring the wilderness throughout south Sardinia, hiking in the wilderness, in search of wildlife and breathtaking scenery. I specialize in wildlife, landscape and environment photography. But I have a special love about night photography, staying in the dark waiting for a display gives you plenty of time to appreciate the scenery. Stargazing is an emotion, and every sound and movement is magnified. I usually snap my night photography with various emotions, surprise, mystery, fear.”
