LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Gabriele Onere is a photographer born in Trento in 1995, living in Milan since 2018 and currently studying at the Italian Institute of Photography where he is also leading the path of assistantship. This parallel path was of great help in terms of professional growth and integration in the work of study assistant.
After three years of work experience in the field of commercial photography in Trento, he chooses to start a parallel photographic journey reasoning on a personal vision of today’s society, with a precise work of aesthetics and a conscious use of the photographic tool.
After this journey, he choses to live for a short time in Taranto, where he develops a photographic project with the aim to inform about the situation of the city in relation to the production of steel of the factory, ArcelorMittal also called “Ex Ilva”. His research is obtained through a direct evisceration of the social classes and the role they have in a society who lives in a place with infinite natural resources, which are contaminated by disease.
From here he begins a more intimate work about his origins and the city where he was born and grew up, which for work and personal reasons he had to leave.
In the last projects, and in particular in this one, called "Istinto", he decided to work only in 4×5. He is fascinated by this type of camera and he thinks it is important to learn how to use it in as many situations as possible, not only in the studio.
WHO I AM
Attracted by the ambiguity of society, he explores characteristics and oddities of a specific place.
