Articles about Lucia De Giovanni
"For De Giovanni – who is frequently distracted during our conversation by the reflection of a tree in a murky puddle of rainwater – that capability to translate her experience into compelling, insightful, evocative images is the matchless power of her chosen art form. “For me, it’s always been fascinating to know that I have the ability, through photography, to actually put somebody behind my eyes.”
And those eyes don’t just see what so many of us overlook. They also capture the emotions, the mood, the essence of their subjects. De Giovanni’s photographs convey a sense of tranquility, peace and contentment that makes viewing them an exceptionally pleasing and joyful experience. Though she professes a disregard for the classical rules of lighting and composition, De Giovanni’s images possess the balance and harmony for which so many visual artists strive, a remarkable visual cohesion that enthralls and transports the viewer.
“I want people to start noticing more of their environment,” De Giovanni exclaims, barely able to contain her delight, “because it really is just gorgeous.” –Eryc Eyl
