Most of the images were taken in Ibiza, Spain at Manumission, which was a Moulin Rouge style stage show and was deemed "The biggest Party in the World".

Victor Spinelli Presents His Sultry Camera Verité

“In the early 1990’s I became a commercial hot air balloon pilot-instructor and started a rag tag but successful Hot Air Balloon sky diving and bungee jumping business. I actually own a World Record (unofficial) for having the oldest lady, Grace Tall, then 75 years old, to bungee jump from my balloon as I was piloting. See Ripley’s Believe it or Not.   Moving forward, with camera in hand, I have for the past 15 years split my time between New York, the Mediterranean and California and have evolved my artistry into several multi-media directions by working on films, commercials, music videos, documentaries and print campaigns. After working for three summers in Mykonos, Greece photographing the island life, I was drawn to another island in the Mediterranean: Ibiza, Spain.  These experiences of mine drive and fuel my creative spirit. I think everything is possible through a positive outlook. ” – Victor Spinelli

1xRUN Thru Interview
Camera Verité by Victor Spinelli
1xRUN: Tell us a little about this book Camera Verité, how did the idea come about and how long did it take to put together?
Victor Spinelli: The book was photographed bewteen 2001 and 2007. It was shot entirely on film, about 15 different films to be exact. The design process took about 3 months. I wanted to create a book that encompassed this work in one package. Most of the images were taken in Ibiza, Spain at Manumission, which was a Moulin Rouge style stage show and was deemed “The biggest Party in the World”. Some other images in the book were taken in Hollywood, Italy and Morocco.
 
1xRUN: Tell us a bit about the accompanying print that comes with the set? How did the idea and execution for this photo come together?
Victor Spinelli: Kissography is an image about love. I took this shot on print film with a macro lens. Many people suggested that I photoshop out the saliva and peach fuzz but I am strongly against this. The image is reality. Life is reality. Once a poster company wanted to license this image from me for worldwide USA distribution but wanted to photoshop the saliva out. I refused.

1xRUN: Your photography ranges from celebrities to Olympians and everything in between, tell us a bit about your various projects?
Victor Spinelli: I’m a gun for hire and what ever I am working on, I set my quality and bar very high. It does not matter the subject or event, I try my best. I am always searching for that special angle, light etc.
1xRUN: How long have you been taking photographs?
Victor Spinelli: I have been shooting my entire life. I think my first camera was a 110 Kodak and I used to take pictures of all my boy scout trips. Then I bought a proper Nikon in 1990 but I started to really hone my skills while working on a fishing boat in Alaska in 1994. My work started to sell soon afterward and I started to work professionally in 1996.
1xRUN: What else do you have in the works?
Victor Spinelli: I have been working on a book about New York City. I want it to be released this fall. And I have been designing a book about India. However, I started painting with acrylics about 3 years ago and now my mix media works, acrylic on photocanvas  are selling really well. I have a few gallery’s selling this work worldwide.

As her resurrection begins as Asia's financial powerhouse, my work lands at her doorstep at the perfect time. A venture capital firm has teamed up with me and we have just opened 'Spinelli Galleries Shanghai' in March." – Victor Spinelli
