STUDENT INVITE ONLY
We are pleased to announce photographer Fabrizio Gianni will deliver our next Guest Lecture.
Fabrizio is a genuine legend with a career that spans 50 years. He began in cinema as assistant director for Sergio Leoni on The Good The Bad and The Ugly but later moved in to fashion photography. His inspiration from cinema is evident in his fashion photography, where he creates storylines in still format. He has worked all over the world for titles such as Vogue, Elle, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar and Figaro.
“I never lost sight of the fact that my job was to persuade women they should remember the clothes - that they are beautiful and sexy but in fact it’s the model who is beautiful and sexy not the dress she is wearing. Designers don’t always think about the woman they are designing for and it was my job to put the clothes into settings to show them being worn. When they are on the catwalk they are not really clothes they are surrealistic works of art. I have to make them look real.”
During his career he has photographed celebrities such as Charlize Theron, Andy McDowell, Antony Hopkins, Keanu Reeves to name but a few.
In 2015 Fabrizio exhibited highlights from his long career titled ‘Fantasia’ which went on view at the Park gallery in Falkirk.
