Guido Castagnoli was born in Turin, Italy in 1976. After receiving a degree in Advertising Graphics and Communication he began his professional career as an art director of a prominent advertising agency in Milan. His interest in photography began when he shot his first images using an old family-owned Leica. During the following years he left his position at the advertising firm to devote himself entirely to photography. His works have been exhibited in public and private institutions in U.S.A., Italy, Germany, England and Japan. Since 2001 he has worked as freelance photographer in advertising and editorial assignments. He is represented by Periscope Creative, Berlin and Sasha Wolf Gallery, New York. These images are from his ‘Provincial Japan’ series.
