Gabriele Galimberti


Gabriele Galimberti is an Italian photographer based in Tuscany. He has spent the last few years working on long-term documentary photography projects around the world, some of which have become books, such as Toy Stories, My Couch Is Your Couch, The Heavens and The Ameriguns

Galimberti’s work mainly consists of telling the stories, through portraits and short stories, of people around the world, recounting their peculiarities and differences, the things they are proud of and the belongings with which they surround themselves. Social media is a fundamental part of the research needed to get in touch, discover and produce those stories. 

Galimberti committed to documentary photography after starting out as a commercial photographer and joining the artistic collective Riverboom. He is currently traveling around the world, working on both solo and collective projects, as well as on assignments for international publications such as National Geographic magazine, Stern, Geo, Le Monde, La Repubblica and Marie Claire

His pictures have been exhibited in shows worldwide, including Les Rencontres d’Arles in France, the Festival Images in Switzerland, and the V&A museum in London, United Kingdom, and have won several prizes including the GRIN 2020, the APP 2020 and the Best In Show prize at the New York Photo Festival. 

Gabriele Galimberti became a National Geographic photographer in 2016 and regularly works for the magazine.
