Giaime Meloni

Born in 1984. Lives and works in Montreuil (FRA).

Photographer of ordinary spaces.

Giaime Meloni is a visual researcher with a PhD in architecture, currently living between two islands: Ile-de-France and Sardinia.  The aim of his work is to explore the role of photography as a sensible instrument to narrate the space complexity. His research has been published in various publications (MAM Saint Etienne, INTRU).

Giaime Meloni takes part in several International Conferences (CCA, FAUP), and participates in some exhibitions (Ritmo Indipendente, Pavillon de l’Arsenal, Le Bal, Contemporary Art Museum Lisbon). In 2017 he was shortlisted for Premio Graziadei with his long term project Das Unheimiliche. In 2019 he was selected by Camera (Centro Italiano per la Fotografia) to take part in the Futures programs for Photography supported by the European Commission. In the same year it was one of the finalists of the Francesco Fabbri Prize for Contemporary Photography with his long term project Columns of Cultures.

He teaches photography as an instrument of the making of the architectural design between France and Italy.
