Photographer Irene Gittarelli (Italy)
Irene Gittarelli was born in Turin on October 13th, 1991 and she currently lives in Milan. Graduated from the Accademia Albertina delle Belle Arti of Turin, she is now attending the Master’s of photography at Accademia di Brera, in Milan.
Gittarelli starts developing her passion for photography in 2005, learning the basics in Plinio Martelli’s studio and then creating a highly personal and surreal style, focused on use of lights and settings more than on the subjects themselves.
Gittarelli joins many collective exhibitions in locations like ARCOS – Museum of Contemporary Art of Benevento, Acaya Castle in Lecce, Fondazione Opera Campana dei Caduti in Rovereto, XXVI International Book Expo in Turin, Museum of Resistance in Turin, Genova contemporanea 2015.
Chosen among many visual artists for the call by OGR and Banca Crt to narrate visually the rehabilitation works of Officine Grandi Riparazioni in Turin, she is now working on the realization of yet another photographic project.
