About Alberto Gigante

I'm Photographer and professional filmaker since 1998. I collaborated with Italian and international TV networks to produce several documentaries, TV and commercial productions. In 2015 I was honored at the Giffoni Film Festival for a short film titled "Sabrina", produced in collaboration with a group of young students who was not professional actors. My passion for photography and cinema has been with me since I was very young, when I watched C.Chaplin's or J.Renoire's movies on TV together with my grandfather and my father. Later, my father gave me his precious Rolleiflex which, still today, it is a great collaborator of my reportage along with my Leica M2 and M6.

Education

I had an original education in the climate of Ferrara in the 1980s. I followed studies and research aimed at the political and social chronicle of the time of which I followed and documented the changes over the years and that formed my way of seeing and following the social and intellectual reality.
