About the series: The Animals:
The animals that he photographs are found in backyards, small villages, fields and farms, which is why he calls his working style “animal-focused street photography”. Giacomo tends to push his camera lens to its closest point of focus, forcing a fight or flight reaction out of the animal. This natural, spontaneous reaction is what he tries to capture.
About the Photographer: Giacomo Brunelli, b 1977, Italy, has had his series on animals exhibited world-wide in The Phographers’ Gallery (London), Galerie Camera Obscura (Paris), and Robert Morat Galerie (Hamburg), to name a few. In 2012, he was commissioned by The Photographers’ Gallery to do a project on London that will be on display in March 2014.
