Genova is the city of contradictions, of opposites that attract each other and give life to a chaotic, frantic, vibrant reality. In Genova eteroide, the city’s uncountable souls coexist and overlap, creating a thick, rich, intense image. The shot is a composition of three partially overlapping images, where the city buildings create a pattern that overwhelms the viewers and portrays a truthful image of a multifaceted city. Genova’s colours vibrantly mirror on the walls of the buildings, surrounded by a soft sky that is cradling the city along.
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.
