Gianluca Fellini was born in Rimini, Italy, in 1981. During a surfing trip in California in 2004, he discovered his talent and love for photography. Without hesitation, he quit his professional basketball player position, and his law studies in Italy, moving to New York City to pursue his passion. Since then, he has created compelling images for numerous editorials and campaigns internationally. The past few years, his passion for photography has also translated into another medium: film. He has shot various music and fashion videos, short films and a first feature length movie. His photographs and films have been exhibited in various galleries and institutions, including the Chelsea Museum, White Box gallery and Holy BOS festival in New York; ABBA Fine Arts (with Nouvelle Vague) during Basel 2012 in Miami, and most recently a solo exhibit at Oblyon in Barcelona.
