Pietro Canali Artist Bio:
Pietro Canali was born in Umbria, Italy in 1975. He trained at the Conservatory of Terni as a classical pianist and later earned a Bachelor’s degree in Drama, Art and Music Studies from the University of Bologna in Italy. His first forays into photography began when he discovered a 1950s Rolleiflex that had belonged to his grandfather. Since 2005, his work as a professional travel photographer has graced the covers of the most prestigious publications, including National Geographic Traveler, The Sunday Times Travel, Condé Nast Traveler, Geo, Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, and Rick Steve’s. In 2007, his solo exhibit entitled “Milk, Flesh and Blood” was shown at Galleria Da*Co* in Terni, Italy. As a travel photographer, he has excelled at capturing nature’s breathtaking colours and vast expanses. In his work as an artist, he has made use of long exposures and controlled camera movements to explore the abstract rather than the figurative patterns found in those same landscapes. Symmetry, negative space and pure lines inform his most recent compositions, in which the order he has uncovered in nature’s randomness is identified and celebrated. Based between Montreal, Canada and his hometown in Umbria, Italy, he travels extensively to constantly create new imagery.
