Technique: Polaroid.

Polaroid by Maurizio Galimberti documenting Paris in 2008. As in all his works, the master of the Polaroid camera only works in analogue, because, as he explains, it is the only type of photography that succeeds in restoring the pathos of a unique and unrepeatable shot. With balance, Galimberti alternates the emotion of composition and the search for rhythm with a propensity for detail, for the intimate scene to be represented with a single shot, a single Polaroid. The work has the artist's signature and the cataloguing number of the Archivio Nordest.

1956 Como, Italy

Maurizio Galimberti was born in Como in 1956. He moved to Milan where he now lives and works.

He approached the world of analogue photography starting with the use of a Widelux rotating lens camera and then focusing his commitment, in a radical and definitive way, on Polaroid in 1983.

In 1991 he began his collaboration with Polaroid Italia, of which he became testimonial with the book "Polaroid Pro Art"; in 1995, which became a real cult object for lovers of the integral type of Polaroid film.

Named "Instant Artist", he is the creator of the "Italian Polaroid Collection"; and in 1992 he won the "Gran Prix Kodak Pubblicità Italia" award. In 2000 he presented the exhibition "I Maestri"; for Kodak Italia. He continued his research with Polaroid and re-invented the technique of "Photographic Mosaic", which was initially suitable for portraits.

The first experiment dates back to 1989 when he portrayed his son Giorgio.

His portrait of Johnny Depp for the Venice Film Festival is the cover of the September 2003 Times Magazine.

The "Mosaic"; soon became his technique for portraying faces, landscapes, architecture and cities. With balance Galimberti alternates the emotion for the composition and the search for rhythm, to a propensity towards the particular, the intimate scene to represent a single shot, a single Polaroid.
