Excerpt from Gianni’s blog:

My name is Gianni Manganelli and I am currently a Imaging & Photographic Technology student at R.I.T. (Rochester Institute of Technology), set to graduate with a B.S. in 2014.

I have been a photographer for seven years, and my tool of the trade is a Nikon D5100 Digital SLR.

I have a deep passion for Japan, and I hope my work reflects a passing beauty revered by the Japanese. I wish to capture beautiful moments in time that are otherwise lost forever.

I do not add watermarks to my images as I feel watermarks destroy the visual unity of an image. Nevertheless, these images are my artwork. You may freely link to my artwork or use it if you credit me. I do not allow any of my artwork to be sold.
