Givanni Red


Givanni Red is a story teller much as she is a photographer. Her pictures are insightful, provocative tales about the way that she sees people and life. Givanni Red’s ability to distort reality combined a with her rigourous technical skills provide the viewer with imagery that is at once surreal while being entirely convincing. But, because she knows the craftiness of photography, the only person not convinced by its seductiveness is Givanni herself.  So, she is driven to find more compelling imagery less tied to narrative and representation. In her most recent works, she challenges the viewer to accept her photographic expressions and explorations without an accompanying script so that we can discover new and hidden codes of meaning.
