The Animals (New Edition) by Giacomo Brunelli
London-based Italian Giacomo Brunelli is a man of a bygone era: compassionate and filled with a sense of humanity that oozes through his work. As a child in Italy, Giacomo spent days alone, playing with the animals. Now Giacomo the man takes a vintage film camera and approaches these creatures, which populate the edges of the human realm without inhibition, just curiosity. Later, he returns to his darkroom and brings them to life on his black and white photo paper. Brunelli is one of a kind, and so is this book.
Giacomo Brunelli: The Animals (new edition), published by Dewi Lewis, is available from The Photographers' Gallery in London for £25.
