Alberto Garavello

Alberto began his descent into the world of photography via British motorsport. He took action shots for the media offices of specific teams, championship races and magazines throughout the United Kingdom.

Next he studied Portrait Photography with Peter Cattrel at Central Saint Martin’s College of Arts and Design, London. He joined a group of professional fashion photographers involved in various projects with artists, actors, designers, models, agencies and events, including London Fashion Week and the London Alternative Fashion Week. Then, with the desire to merge fashion with portraiture more intently and to hone his art, he took Fashion Photography classes led by Leigh Keily at Central Saint Martin’s, University of the Arts.

Alberto is now based back in Italy where he continues to explore and develop his impulsive and passionate relationship with portraiture.

In particular, with the group collective 4 Monkeys Lab, he developed the photographic project “SìAmo Arcella”. Arcella is a multicultural neighbourhood of Padua, and the name of the project is a deliberate pun, because it can sound as two different meanings: “Sì Amo Arcella” (“Yes, I love Arcella”) and “Siamo Arcella” (“We are Arcella”). So far, the photographers have created a collection published on their Facebook page of portraits and street scenes of the neighbourhood, that show in a creative and innovative way its variety, in terms of cultures, generations and urban spaces.
