Giò Tarantini

I am a self-taught photographer based in Bassano del Grappa, in the northern part of Italy. I cover a wide and varied range of subjects – from portraiture, wedding, sport, reportage, to wildlife and landscape.

I enjoy the finer things in life, the ones that really matter to me – my family, my friends, a good book, a glass of wine, or a good meal with the right person.

I discovered my passion for photography so late – or maybe photography discovered me to help me in this time of my life. To give you a glimpse of how I think of photography there is a line from Richard Avedon that I really feel is “mine” – “If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. I know that the accident of my being a photographer has made my life possible.”

Now I will let my photos do the talking.

"Fotografare è trattenere il respiro quando le nostre facoltà convergono per captare la realtà fugace; a questo punto l'immagine catturata diviene una grande gioia fisica e intellettuale. Fotografare è riconoscere nello stesso istante e in una frazione di secondo, un evento e il rigoroso assetto delle forme percepite con lo sguardo che esprimono e significano tale evento. E' porre sulla stessa linea di mira la mente, gli occhi e il cuore. E' un modo di vivere."

-Henry Cartier-Bresson
