Piergiorgio Branzi is an Italian journalist and photographer born in Signa in 1928 and raised in Florence. He started photography in the fifties and traveled extensively in Italy, particulary in the south. As with many iconic photographers of this time, Piergiorgio Branzi is skilled in the art of combining a flair for poetry with a love of detail. His works have earned him great notoriety in Italy and abroad. His work has been shown in famous museums like Guggenheim in New York, the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris and the Tate Gallery in London. If you’d like to get to know Branzi and his work a little better, I can recommend this interview by Italian Ways.
