Biography

My name is Gianluca Micheletti, I was born in 1972, and I live in a small town in the province of Bergamo (Italy).
I’ve always been attracted by pictures, but I approached photography only relatively late after having followed other paths.
I attended the first photographic courses in 2012 and at the same time, I participated in various photographic workshops in different areas.
After an important and challenging workshop in Berlin with Sara Munari, in October 2012, I decided to attend evening studies at the Italian Institute of Photography in Milan, where I won a scholarship in 2013 and the Project Book in 2014.
Today I work as a photographer and I continue my path of growth in photography research.
