About Gianfranco Merati Photography



I like representing reality in an unconventional way. I am particularly interested in capturing images that would be difficult to observe with the naked eye. I typically achieve this by using either high-speed photography (in the most extreme cases 1/38,500th of a second) to freeze events that last very short moments or macro & micro photography to enlarge details that are too small to be appreciated without magnification. Sometimes I combine the two approaches by shooting very small and fast-moving scenes. I also enjoy taking more traditional shots, although I tend to interpret the classics in my own way.
