Jerome De Perlinghi

Since the middle of the Seventies, Jerome De Perlinghi has been shooting images and photographs. It was his 15-year-old when he boarded a ship to Hull, UK, with a Nikkormat and a 35 mmm lens. There are stories from the early days traveling by train from Liverpool to Manchester.

His love of the b/w will transpire going on to Shanghai and with the two portfolios around Central Asia. Since his Shanghai book was published in Paris in 2000, it has become mostly color, with the digital age all around. After having photographed Chicago in b/w, mostly in the Nineties and early 2000, viewers will get it all in color. This is the work of Jerome De Perlinghi’s walks from the last six years.

Once in a while, still, b/w remains his true love as viewers will see this in the portfolio "The Real OG's and Their Friends", a set of portraits from December 2015 around the underworld in Baltimore. Shot in and around the funeral of a Godfather, it became a very interesting story. Without the portraits of the famous, Jerome De Perlinghi says, the Gallery of his homepage would not be complete, many beautiful memories around Liam Neeson or Morgan Freeman.
