The An­i­mals (New Edi­tion) by Gi­a­como Brunelli

Professional Photography - - Agenda -

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.
