Urbanoise is the series of photos which narrates the decomposition of the city. One of these artworks, the mosaic of many small images, illustrates and summarizes perfectly the meaning of the series itself: reality and different environments of the city are divided and eternalized through many points of views, magnifying the interest of the observer who strives for reconstructing the images in their entirety from single details. The colour is not natural, from the black and white to sepia effects. The alteration of the colour must be understood as an element of the research of new perspectives of the cities, which are decomposed and reinterpreted with the aim of finding and narrating a new meaning for the subject of these photos. A question lies at the foundation of this series, an investigation that seems to describe the new essence of the metropolis from its places and intrinsic expression.
The artist’s education starts with language studies in high school and to follow one year as a philosophy student at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan. During this time she realised that she wanted to make of her passion, art in general, her mainly occupation. For this reason she decided to quit her philosophy studies in favour of Accademia NABA, where she enrolled in the Media Design course. Arts, communication, and new technologies are for her daily work materials, an thus she started her collaboration as a photographer and assistant on movies set with local journals. Her quickly-achieved expertise allowed her to work very soon alongside directors as famous as Paolo Virzì, as well as to work for major television networks such as MTV and Mediaset, taking part in the realisation of movies and TV series. Always fascinated by the audio-visual world, Claudia Galeazzi proposes herself as video maker and photographer: her products are marked by precision of shapes and aesthetich armony, with an uncanny attention to the use of the light and to the central role of the black and white.
