Gusmano Cesaretti, born in Lucca, Italy, and a resident of Los Angeles since 1970, has been capturing the sound, light, and even emotional tenor of his adopted city through the lens of his camera.
Gusmano has published two books: Street Writers- A Guided Tour of Chicano Graffiti, and Physical Graffiti-4x4=24. He is a contributing photographer to the book, 24 Hours in the Life of Los Angeles. His photographs have been exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In 2008, Gusmano participated in a major collaborative exhibition entitled, This Side of Paradise: Body and Landscape in Los Angeles Photographs at the Huntington Library.
Fourteen of Gusmano's photographs are part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian Institute (Smithsonian photo link) in Washington, D. C. and the Museum of Contemporay Art, Los Angeles. The many countries that Gusmano has made photographic studies of include: Mexico, Central and South America, Haiti, and South East Asia.
