Giacomo Giannelli is an award-winning Italian fine art photographer based in London.
Giannelli studied History of Art and Set Design at the prestigious Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma. His work combines a gift for storytelling with the purity and timelessness of the monochrome image and an intention to capture something of the mystery and symbolism at the heart of his subject – from the abstracted details of a flower to the experience of walking amongst wild goats and being up-close with horses. Shooting with camera in hand, Giannelli’s work is intimate and direct. Particularly concerned with capturing the essence of a mood or the passage of time, his practice is heavily influenced by Italian photographers of the Twentieth-century and often explores the idea of connection to one’s origins. His uncanny ability to recreate the sense of sounds and emotions experienced at a precise moment brings us as close as possible to the soul of his subject.
Giannelli’s work has been featured widely throughout Italy, the UK and internationally, including commissions by Disaronno and The Busker Irish Whisky. He has received numerous awards and nominations for his work and is represented by several leading international galleries.
