BIOGRAPHY

Raphaël Gianelli-Meriano is a French director and photographer who lives and works in Paris.
His passion for the Arts begins at the Music conservatory of Valence where he studies violin.
Between the age of 19 and 23, he grabs his skateboard and camera and travels the world sponsored by Sector9 Skateboards.
His acute eye and original approach open the doors to several French and international press titles that soon publish his portraits and editorial series.
(Libération, Jalouse, French, Beaux Arts, EyeMazing, Bon International, Purple, Redux…).

In 2002, he travels to Estonia and participates in the Kinobuss summer festival of « on the road » cinema for which he soon becomes the official photographer. His pictures are exhibited at the National Library in Tallinn.

His first book ABOUT ESTONIA is launched at Colette in Paris in 2005 and relayed by the critic.

This recognition leads him to develop new projects and to investigate new artistic fields of expression.

At 40, Raphaël is a multidisciplinary artist who embraces all facets of visual expression from film direction, photography, cinematography and writing.
