Hello, my name is Giovanni Ricco and I was born and raised in Vignola, Italy. Currently based in Valencia, Spain, I was privileged to travel from a young age which sparked my interest in Narrative and Documentary photography.
By seeing first hand the diverse cultures, landscapes and meeting people on the streets, I became a passionate photographer who believes there are plenty of stories to be told, and demands from the world to see them.
I have a Bachelor degree in Fine Art Photography and since 2017 I have been working as a professional photographer and videographer helping brands and enterprises to thrive through solid visual communication services offered by my team and I. Over the years I had the pleasure to work with enterprises, brands, start-ups, designers and local businesses. From photography to video making and other content creation such as brand journalism I seek to help brands tell their story and share it with the world.
I am the founder and manager of Espai Batit, a photography coworking which offers dynamic studio solutions for established and aspiring photographers.
Most of my work focuses on analysing landscapes that surround me which usually includes intimate scenes, buildings, and people. Through the viewfinder, I try to come to terms with the essence behind the scenes I am experiencing. My photographic attention is usually caught by small details, secondary views, and introspective perceptions.
With a personal sense of humor, my goal is to document the environments I witness and the stories that come with them.
During my free time I like to work on personal projects, surf, listening to music, walk with no destination and spending time with my loved ones: Ashuni my girlfriend and Nena, our dog.
