Giancarlo Montes-Santangelo - Scholars - The Gordon Parks Foundation

Giancarlo Montes is a junior photography major at Purchase College. Inspired by the works of Gregory Halpern and Andrea Modica, he is interested in the poetics of photography. He is motivated by found circumstances and the photograph's willingness to be stretched and manipulated according to his vision of them. He is currently exploring the development of sexualities in public and private spaces and as a result the circumstances in which they are formed. Most recently, Giancarlo has been working as an intern in the Photo Department with the Guggenheim and has collaborated with the Trisha Brown Dance Company, in creating images for projection during a dance piece.
