Giacomo Brunelli - The Photographers` Gallery
GIACOMO BRUNELLI
For the past few years Italian photographer Giacomo Brunelli (b. 1977) has been
observing animals and using them as the inspiration for his work. Taken in both
country and urban settings, Brunelli’s photographs explore the darker side of the
animal kingdom. These frequently unsettling depictions of familiar, often
domesticated, creatures question how much we truly understand them and their
innate wildness.
Brunelli uses a 35mm camera and photographs from a low angle, which allows him
to get up close to his animal subjects. Printing the images small and in black &
white, and retaining the black borders with rounded corners, creates a timeless
element to the works. Recalling 19th century cabinet cards they take on a precious
quality far removed from the wildlife photography we are used to seeing today.
