Andrea Galvani


Italian-born photographer, Andrea Galvani, currently lives and works in both Milan and in New York, and has been teaching Photographic Language and History of Contemporary Photography at the Accademia Carrara di Belle Arti di Bergamo since 2006…

Galvani’s work can be described as simplistic or surreal, and the photographs themselves express a feeling of placidity. The still horse, standing freely in an empty plane, with fragile balloons surrounding it’s delicate head, which could pop at any moment, or the accepting-business man going up in smoke, standing in a ceremonious manner, in front of contrasting terrain, all give off a feeling of sedateness.
