With the death of the great, poetic, Italian photographer Mario Giacomelli (1925-2000), Europe lost one of its most talented image-makers. Giacomelli trained initially as a typographer and this early interest in graphic effect became a central part of his later photographic work. Winner of numerous medals and prizes, he achieved international status with exhibitions in Europe, America and Japan
