“Giacomo Brunelli stalks the streets of New York with his old film camera, often for ten hours a day, looking for characters and details that are adrift in time.
His work has an air of nostalgia to it, and a film noir sensibility. The images are dark, shadowy, moody and a bit menacing — as if we’re looking through the eyes of a night detective, a voyeur or a stalker.
They provoke an unspoken narrative, offering up clues to an unknown mystery.
True to his love of old things and old ways, Brunelli shoots with a 1962 Miranda camera and prints in his darkroom.”…Jim Casper for Lens Culture
