Fontana has worked in many genres including the human figure, landscapes, and fashion. For most of his work he relied on 35 mm cameras.

The artist has enjoyed a great deal of commercial success and has seen his work appear in advertising campaigns of the nations largest companies over his lengthy career.

My favorite works of this artist are his images of the female figure shot with the basic shapes seen in the swimming pool.
