Italian photographer and Canon Ambassador Gabriele Galimberti is fascinated by people and the way they live. His distinctive documentary images, shot in dozens of countries worldwide, reveal not only the many variations between people of different cultures, but also how much we have in common. 

“Around 90% of my photos are portraits, done from a documentary point of view,” says Gabriele. “Basically, I like to meet people, spend time with them and photograph normal, everyday life. I go into people’s houses and see what they do, find out about their habits and what they collect. That’s what I enjoy the most.”

Born and raised in Val di Chiana, a rural region in central Italy, Gabriele began taking photographs at the age of 14, when his father gave him his old Canon AE-1. Initially, he used the camera to photograph fellow members of the rock band he played in, but soon began using the images to create comic-like stories with speech bubbles. 

After school he trained to be a surveyor, but realised he really wanted to be a photographer. He studied photography at the Fondazione Studio Marangoni in Florence, and then worked as a fashion and commercial photographer in Milan. “Doing that work was cool because I learned a lot about lighting,” says Gabriele, “but my real ambition was to become a documentary photographer.”

In 2005, love took him to live in Texas in the United States, where he started shooting documentary stories and selling them to Italian magazines. Then he began a period of travelling through China, India and Brazil, which led to his first big project, CouchSurfing, in which he travelled to 58 countries and photographed his numerous hosts going about their daily lives. 

“It was really challenging,” says Gabriele. “It was my first big project and involved two years of travel by myself, going everywhere from Alaska to Panama, Egypt to Botswana, and dealing with different languages and cultures. But in the end, it was an amazing experience. Thanks to that project, I got a lot of exposure and it ultimately led to me working for international magazines.” Since 2015, Gabriele has been shooting his stories for National Geographic.
