1 lb. Gallery Artists



Manuel Colombo of Padenghue sul Garda, Brescia, Italy – joined 1 lb. Gallery as our first cherished, and highly esteemed photographer – in November of 2013. We feel terribly honored to have been given the opportunity to represent such a gifted photographer!

Manuel (born in Desenzano del Garda, Italy in 1972) began his lifelong love affair with photography in the ’80’s, as a self-taught analog photographer – ultimately however, he made the switch to digital photography. Having started out as a landscape photographer who captured his images using long exposure times, Manuel has since evolved into a fine art photographer whose elaborate preparation for his  conceptual, staged shoots – yields thought-provoking photographs that embody a radically different aesthetic than his earliest work did.

His extensive knowledge of the history of photography, along with his technical expertise – equipped Manuel with the skills necessary to allow him to begin teaching both subjects in 2009, he also leads photographic workshops at high schools in his area.

Under the auspices of several different art galleries in Brescia, Rome and Merano, Italy – Manuel has enjoyed the privilege of exhibiting both his personal, and his fine art photography collections.

In 2011, Manuel signed on as a supervisor and promotor of the, “ISO600 – Instant Photography Festival”, the first Polaroid Photo Festival to ever be held in Italy. He has also been a jury member of many highly respected national photography contests.

Manuel’s work has been published in magazines and newspapers of national importance.

He loves red, black, dark and light…and chocolate, as well.
