Maurizio Galimberti was born in Como, Italy in 1956 and grew up in Meda. As a young man, he won many photography competitions using classic analog film, mainly working in black and white and in diapo/cibachrome with a Widelux camera. In the year 1983 his passion/obsession with the Polaroid camera began. Each of these portrait express something unique to each celebrity. Galimberti completely reinvents the traditional portrait by employing a mosaic arrangement that invites the viewer to move through the piece and discover something different through each individual Polaroid making up the whole work.
