Giacomo Colombo

Giacomo Colombo (b. 1995, Milan) graduated with a BA in Communication Design from Politecnico di Milano in 2017 and received a Diploma in Photography and Visual Communication from Cfp Bauer in 2019.

His research is based on re-appropriations, reactions to unforeseen changes and reconnections. Through a cross-disciplinary approach that explores photography, sculpture and collage, the artistic practice oscillates between trasformative operations and use of the traditional photographic medium.

His recent work questions the boundaries between reality and representation, addressing the ambiguity of the photographic experience within the contemporary image-making.The imagery examines concepts of equivocacy and meaning of the image in the context of technological innovation and recirculation of visual material.
