GIANNA LEO FALCON, Random Articulations
Exhibition Launch Event - 5-8pm Saturday, April 9th
Exhibition dates - April 2nd - May 10th
Gianna Leo Falcon is a self taught freelance fine art photographer born and raised in NYC . Her work deals with the human condition with a focus on self reflective photo journalism. Most if not all of her subjects are personal friends lovers or her self. She prefers shooting in black and white because she feels it pulls on emotions in a deeper way.
This current exhibition, titled 'Random Articulations' is a small piece of a much larger project called visual diaries, which can be described as a fluid consciousness. More of this ongoing project can be seen on her website and Instagram.
We spoke with Gianna about her work an inspirations, please read the interview about her evocative photographs.
