Adrian Galli

(American, b. 1983)

Adrian Galli is a cinematographer and photographer who creates photographs of architectural structures in Chicago. With the use of natural lighting and heavy contrast and shadow, Galli captures the simple and dramatic beauty of each building by focusing on the sharp graphic lines, angles, and shapes within the urban landscape. Though often depicting iconic Chicago landmarks—such as the Marina City or Hancock towers—Galli’s selective compositions render the buildings as pure sculptural form.

Adrian Galli received his BFA from Columbia College Chicago (2007). He currently lives and works in the city as a film producer.
