Oreste Ferretti was born in Parma in 1941, where he lives and works. He has been combining love for photography with his travels since 1978. And he does it in concert with his wife Odetta Carpi. Use only colour. Specialist in the multi-image slide presentations, the author, has received numerous awards and awards. He has a large archive, a wealth of shots. Unable to list visited countries. One thing: he was in Nepal 34 times and does not remember how many in India. For 40 years traveling without ever putting down the suitcase.

Two strong cultural motives guide Oreste Ferretti's "photography". On the one hand, interest in art and painting, and on the other, the passion for travel. This feeling stimulates and gives vital nourishment to the desire to investigate, interpret, understand, and know.
Odetta Carpi is his life and travel companion, attentive sensibility, capable of giving Ferretti photographer's work that extra something that triggers mechanisms of pure creativity.
Together they choose the photographic moments on which to invest. They are important moments in which they design unusual photographic itineraries to enrich themselves and add, day after day, something to the baggage of their knowledge.
Of the five continents, the East dominates his heart, in that land he has found worlds that fascinated him, and in that land they always come back to tell and tell.
