Photographer Giorgio Galimberti Portrait

Giorgio Galimberti’s portrait 

Born into photography, since when he was a child Giorgio Galimberti experimented with different photographic media, especially with his polaroid camera. He developed then his own style contaminated by art, cinema and literature

RG: Every time you take a picture, does it leave a particular memory?

GG: The relationship with my photographs is intense, every single image is scratched in the diary of my memories and remains forever in my mind.

Whenever I see one of my images even from several years ago, it immediately brings me back to that place … I think it is comparable to a song for a singer, it can be compared to a short but intense love story.

RG: What relationship does Giorgio Galimberti have with the subjects of his photography?

GG: Being a street photographer, the approach before shooting is non-existent, but in reality my vision has already carried it into my emotions and in my photography. Later if they ask me why I photographed them I try to establish a relationship trying to immediately understand my good faith and telling what I do.

It sometimes happens that we exchange addresses and then I send them the photograph where they are portrayed.

RG: What an Interior Designer could learn from a photographer?

GG: I am convinced that design and photography breathe the same air.

I was born in Brianza, home of design furniture, and I am fortunate to know all the great companies that have been pioneers, creating pieces with the great architects who have written the history of design .

My photography lives on lines and geometries and I try to bring in my images the rigor, the lightness and the fragility that often these works of art have.

Design starts from an idea and a blank sheet, photography starts from an idea and a negative to be written in your own language with your own planning.

RG: How did your style evolved?

GG: My style stems from personal taste, from the thousands of photographs I have seen, from the auteur cinema and from the books I have read.

These are contaminations that influence your cultural background and personal vision leading you towards a well-defined style.

RG: What are you doing during quarantine to keep yourself busy?

GG: I try to stick to photography as much as possible.

I do a lot of activities, I look and dig in my archive also trying to understand my photographic evolution and in what direction my approach to photography is going and evolving.

In addition, I photograph a lot of the places where I usually spend the day, which normally are my mother’s house and my son’s house. I try to create an intimate diary of my affections, I believe that in the future a similar job can become an important personal document.
