About the Book
Ale Di Gangi, born Florentine in January 1966, started making photos in his late 30s.
After falling for a small object called Lomo Lc-a and colours, he always carries at least one camera with himself all the time.
"This is my first book of photographs, aptly named 'book one'".
The choice of materials shown here is purely based on what I like best of my production in the last couple of years or so: digital, film, and polaroids.
Lots more can be seen on my Flickr stream, where I can be found under the name of ale2000."
I was born in 1966 in Florence (Italy), to an artistically dynamic extended family. I owe my visual education primarily to my father, a passionate photographer who taught me to shoot and film in 8mm. iPhoneography, Polaroid and Lomography are my primary interests and means of artistic expression. I have exhibited my works in solo and group exhibitions worldwide (London, Berlin, Milan, Barcelona, New York, Los Angeles, Berkley, Miami to name a few). I also make short movies and music videos that have been screened at various Italian and international cinema festivals. Amongst these, the short film Investigations On Citizens Above Suspicions was selected and screened at the Short Film Corner at Cannes in 2009. I consider myself an impressionist photographer, instinctive in nature and terminally curious about life and art.
