Meet Photographer Emanuele D’Angelo, Who Calls Emily Ratajkowski His Muse

Rome-born photographer, Emanuele D’Angelo, comes from an era of photography where a “traditional” approach was the industry norm – enamored by the books of luminaries like Hirohiko Araki and Richar Kern which he had acquired from his father. While for many artists, this may have formed a jaded opinion towards the newer generation, D’Angelo is actually happy to see people expressing themselves in any matter they see fit.

Although D’Angelo has shot people like Rihanna, Big Sean, Bella Hadid, Miguel, Rich the Kid, and Dwyane Wade, its his work with model/actress, Emily Ratajkowski.

“I met my friend/muse Emily Ratajkowski when I went to LA for the very first time back in 2012,” he says. “A friend we had in common from Rome introduced me to her and her boyfriend at that time. We started to hang out and take photos once in a while and that helped us to build the strong friendship/work relationship we have today.”
