Born in Milan Italy in 1980, Stefano Gardel is an award winning fine art photographer based in Lugano Switzerland.

"I don't shoot with the intent of faithfully representing reality, nor I shoot to document or shed light on a topic, being it social or environmental . My work is art based, researching shapes and colours that I deem to be aesthetically pleasing and using subjects that tend to create moods or suspended sensations. I use light, color and shapes to attune what I see on the outside to what I feel on the inside".
 - Stefano Gardel
