Giorgio Bagnarelli Photography
Giorgio Bagnarelli is a 33 year old Italian portrait photographer who's been taking photos since he was about ten years old. His father was an amateur photographer during the 80's and Giorgio always had easy access to his cameras. Since 1999 he started taking things more seriously and in the last ten years he has exhibited his work in Italy and abroad.
Greatest inspirations or influences?
- Painters like Bronzino, Caravaggio, Lotto, Hans Holbein (the Younger).
- I love the works of Mapplethorpe, Nadar, Disfarmer, Avedon, Penn.
Most memorable shoot so far?
I don’t know exactly… everytime I ask someone to pose for me is a memorable experience, it sounds trite but it’s the pure truth: people are always different, the relations you create is always something that you can’t easily forget even if bad.
I’m working to a project about immigration. I think it’s a very contemporary issue right now in Italy. It will be always in the fiield of portraiture but anyway… it’s a long and hard work to develop… I will tell you something more the next time.
- I really like www.americansuburbx.com It’s a wonderful archive with interviews and texts about photography.
Most interesting response to your work so far?
Every time someone ask me to write about my work. I think it is the best way to promote and share my art.
Other upcoming artists who's work you admire?
- Sebastian Schramm (http://www.flickr.com/photos/sinnen/). He is one of my favourite photographers on Flickr. I love his work always technically perfect and clear.
