About the Photographer ... Geri-Ann Galanti
Photo by Evan Nischan
Geri-Ann Galanti is a portrait photographer, specializing in timeless images which evoke a distant time or place. Her skillful use of lighting, costumes, and props create dramatic, vibrant and painterly images.
Her journey to photography took a large detour through a graduate degree in anthropology and university teaching. What always came through was an interest in people and communication, both important components in portrait photography. Although photography was an important aspect of her fieldwork in Guatemala, she didn’t become serious about it until she retired from the university and began attending Santa Monica College. A devoted fan of time travel fiction, she’s able to apply that love to her various photography series.
