Luca Galavotti is a photographer and director based in Bologna, Italy.
Attracted by everything related to communication and visual arts, he started photographing in the early 2000s during his university studies. He first began taking pictures of his surrounding, then for five years he has been working for a photography agency traveling in many different places, in Italy and abroad. Luca Galavotti’s body of work exists at the intersection of fashion, documentary, and portraiture, creating authentic environments where people’s unique stories can be told through imagery. Deliberately cinematic, his images are clearly informed by an innate sensitivity towards and respect for his subjects.
In parallel with commissioned works, Galavotti carries out personal projects which tend to investigate the relationship between places and human beings, and especially how these elements impinge on each other, in a sort of symbiosis. A tireless traveler, he is a strong lover of analog photography and most of his photographs are taken using old film cameras.
