Sharing its title with the centuries-old street in Milan, Italy, the subject at the center of Sam Scott Schiavo’s ‘Corso Sempione’ recalls the style and attitude of Marlon Brando’s character in the 1953 film ‘The Wild Ones’; a story tracing the escapades of a young rebel and his motorcycle gang. The blurred quality of the film photograph gives the piece a vintage and mysterious air, putting a sense of distance between viewer and subject.
No apparent condition issues.

American photographer Sam Scott Schiavo has created a body of work heavily influenced by a self-described love of cinema, especially film noir, neo realism, and underground. While set in the present day, his works echo feelings of nostalgia and past recollections. Though the artist began working as a professional model in Milan, photography has become his primary artistic medium. Schiavo currently lives and works in Europe, where he has resided for the last 35 years.
