About

Stefano Gardel  (b. in Milan Italy in 1980) is an award winning fine art photographer based in Lugano Switzerland.

"I don't photograph with the intention of faithfully representing reality, nor to document or clarify a subject, be it social or environmental . My work is based on art, where the search of shape and color is the main focus. My aim is to create aesthetically pleasing subjects and suspended moods and sensations."
