Stefano Gardel, born in Milan Italy in 1980, is an award winning fine art photographer based in Lugano, Switzerland. A chiropractor by profession, he discovered only recently his passion and talent for photography, becoming professional in a very short time.
His mysterious and fascinating photographs often depict lonely landscapes and gloomy urban scenes, where common and familiar sights suddenly become less familiar, acquiring an out of worldly and more symbolic dimension. Collaborating with different art galleries worldwide, Stefano Gardel travels the globe extensively to capture the magic with his camera lens.
Our selection of his photographs has brought us from the dryness and the heat of the California desert to the cold and humid twilights of the Swiss Alps where he grew up.
