Giuseppe
Gradella

Portraits that make you hold your breath

Stacks Image 4594

Italian Photographer Giuseppe Gradella has a profound belief in memories and dreams. Conscious that everything is layered over time, in the heart, in the memory that, sooner or later, will find 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, then re-emerging to observe the world from a different perspective, one that is more aware.

In his photographs, 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.”
