Alberto Gandolfo was born in Palermo in 1983. Passionate about photography since a young age, he started his training in 2010 in a local school of photography. He studied printing techniques for black and white at a workshop with Antonio Manta, and then deepened his knowledge in various genres and approaches, at a specialized course of studies with authors such as Valerio Bispuri and Efrem Raimondi. Inspired by the latter and from the production of grand masters like Richard Avedon and Paolo Roversi, Alberto specialized in portraits. In the last years he has completed many projects, with subjects ranging from common characters to representatives of national and international culture. His artworks have been displayed in many sites, including: GAM (modern art gallery in Palermo), Fondazione Teatro Massimo (Massimo Theater Foundation), Les Rencontres d'Arles - Voies off, FotoFabrika Festival in Sofia (2019), Head On Photo Festival in Sydney (2020). He regularly collaborates with FLM - Festival delle Letterature Migranti, an international event that takes place every year in Palermo. In 2016 he started Église, a project that aims to promote photography thanks to a continuous activity of formation and exhibition in Palermo area. With the project What remains he won the first prize as best portfolio at the Fotografia Europea festival 2018. In 2019 What remains becomes a book, edited by Benedetta Donato, published by Silvana Editoriale Spa. The book was selected at the Prix du Livre - Les Rencontres d'Arles.
