The photographer's ink stamp on the verso. One of Italy's most acclaimed photojournalists, Gianni Berengo Gardin spent his childhood in Santa Maria Ligure, his adolescence in Rome, and his young adulthood in Switzerland, Paris, and Venice. His capacity for careful observation can be seen in images that have appeared in over 200 books and in numerous leading Italian and non-Italian illustrated magazines, including Domus, Epoca, L'Espresso, Time, Stern, Harper's, Réalités, Vogue, Le Figaro and many others. He has often been called the Henri Cartier-Bresson of Italy. His retrospective monograph, "Gianni Berengo Gardin: Photographer", was published in 2005 and edited by Roberto Koch and Alessandra Mauro. Over 50 different exhibitions worldwide have celebrated his over 52 years of work and creativity. His photography has been shown at the New York Museum of Modern Art, the George Eastman House and the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.
