BIO

Born in Como in 1996, Gianluca Morini started his photographic journey as an autodidact at 18. Paralleling his interest with undergraduate studies, he began developing finer projects and exhibiting in his native province. In 2018 his work has been shown at Centro Culturale Candiani, concomitantly with Yuri Catania’s exhibit “No Fashion Places for America”. On this occasion, within the contest “Insegne : Parole e Immagini d’Italia” he shared the first place with Riccardo Bertoia. In 2019 he placed third in the photography section of Novelli contemporary art prize.

His work appears in several publications, both national and international.

His vision and research are fueled by the observation of territory and urban spaces and the peculiar relationships that occur between land and its inhabitants. His main subjects are Italy, his motherland, and Brazil, where his parents were born.
