Giulio Gigante is a not professional documentary, urban landscape, and street photographer based in Pescara, Italy. His interests and preferences are not limited to these genres and he takes pleasure in capturing whatever worthwhile he comes across. His photography is about our understanding and interpretations of the environment and its relationship with human beings.
Taking pictures of street images with a lot of enthusiasm, but not finding satisfaction he metabolized this passion in a world more intimate and reflective, where he's finding your language and your way.
He has always considered photography as a document first, and find out the documentary landscape was for him a revelation.
Giulio started studying the masters in this field: the documentary photography of Walker Evans, Atget, the most moderns Stephen Shore, Andreas Gursky, and the great Italian authors as Luigi Ghirri and Guido Guidi.
Never prepare my shots, never edit scenes. I find free inspiration from the world in which I live and I am. I like to document what I see, what I observe, but I really like to know the places and the history of the landscape. I always try to read up before, because you feel good sensations in being in a known location. Sometimes I read and study even after visiting the place, finding pleasure in reading and in the investigation for what is becoming in that moment my history lived.
He participated in group exhibitions and He has won a few competitions at national and regional level (Pescara, Padua, Cagliari).
