GIOVANNI GASTEL photographer – “My Ladies” photo exhibition

Giovanni Gastel photo exhibition My Ladies


I went to see the international photographer GIOVANNI GASTEL’s photo exhibition “My Ladies”.

(Milan October 20th – November 25th, 2017)

Born in Italy, but known all over the world. Giovanni Gastel can’t be summed up with two words, on his art there is so much material that you can write quietly a degree thesis.

My personal impressions are the following. Gastel is The Elegance.
In all his photos (even those not shown in this exhibition), there is this thread, regardless of the subject: elegance.
He is elegant himself. No, I’m not talking about his dress, I refer to him as person.
Anyone (and I emphasize anyone), went to shake his hand, just to say, “Congratulations!” he held their hand firmly, looked in their eyes and even though it was for a few seconds, those few seconds were for them.
Come on! You surely met someone you shook the hand and this person gave you a cold hand shake, in the meantime they turned the head to the other side to say hello to someone else, right? Or they pay attention only if you tell him: “Hi, I am John Smith from the New York Times”, then they stop talking and act funny.
Well, Gastel is “The Elegance” and fine manners too.
I stop here, I don’t go ahead because I hope we shall have an opportunity to interview him. We leave you with the photos we took (credit Vaifro Minoretti) and…
