IN THE LIGHT OF THE FACTS – Mauro Galligani, the storyteller photographer

Where an event happens

The right camera to start taking photos is a reflex (compact, bridge or omirrorless), because it is convenient to carry around. In the SLR camera, you can change the lenses. You can buy your first reflex used, because you save and the quality remains the same. If you want to learn to identify and photograph the best subjects, train yourself to do it in unthinkable places, as Mauro Galligani has always done.

Superb in conveying the thrill of contact, he is an eyewitness to the events of the international news. Born in 1940 in Farnetella (Siena), he attended the School of Cinematography in Rome. Deeply influenced by neo-realist cinema, Mauro Galligani became photojournalist for an Italian newspaper, following the events of the international news.

He recounts life and its happening, only facts that are modulated in a scenography interpreted in an immediate way. His reference models come from written journalism, photographically capturing aspects of the reality in front of which he finds himself. Mauro Galligani, who likes to call himself a journalist who uses the photographic image to express himself, has collaborated with some of the most important newspapers in the world, including Life magazine.

Where an event occurs, a photograph is born there. In his work, Mauro Galligani photographically captures aspects and details of the reality in front of him, thus offering the reader the full opportunity to understand what is happening.
