The best way to start your week :)
One of our most talented photographer, Giuseppe Gradella is an architect who turned towards photography with amazing and extraordinary results. He is also included in Italy’s Vogue best photographers.
This great photographer draws inspiration mainly in memories and dreams, into which he has a profound belief.
Conscious that everything is layered over time, in the heart, in memory and that – sooner or later – it finds a way back to the light to unveil itself, Giuseppe thinks of photography as holding your breath just under the surface for as long as your breath lasts and then re-emerging to observe the world from a different, more aware, perspective. In order for memory to speak to him, he arms himself with a lot of patience and an excellent bait that allows him to fish even where life’s flow is perceptible only to the eye, like under a sheet of ice. Physical places and those that exist in memory, where life and dreams intertwine in a process of transfiguration and internal re-creation in which time is suspended.
In Giuseppe’s photographs, which deal with fashion, architecture and fine art, there is a constant juxtaposition between what is actually in front of the camera and what he has retained from his experiences, in a continuous study that becomes introspective self-critique. As he himself is fond of saying, “For me, photography arrived like a storm after months of drought, and I am still very thirsty.”
Giuseppe lives and works in Mantua (Italy). “This is your body” and “Ossimoron” are his stunning on-going fine art photography projects that Fumogallery is proud to feature on his website.
The photographic portrait is a required rite of passage for every photographer, but it can also be a trap due to the difficulties involved. If equipped with a deep artistic sensibility and spirit, however, the photographer is capable of entering into a sort of spiritual symbiosis with the subject, giving the portrait a strength that goes beyond technical, compositional and aesthetic mastery.
Offering new ways to look at and experience the female body, Questo è il tuo corpo (This is your body) is an on-going fine art photography project by the very talented Italian photographer Giuseppe Gradella that explores the intricacies and importance of the female nude. One can expect abstracted sections of the female body opposed to the aesthetic norms often associated with the world of sex and hedonism.
