Eleonora Ghioldi was born in Buenos Aires in 1972. Inspired during her adolescent years, she became engrossed in learning the art of photography from the best, not only through observation but also by printing the fine work of the masters. She has printed for renowned international photographers such as Helmut Newton, Donata Wenders, Graciela Iturbide, Lauren Greenfield, Andy Summers, Steve Schapiro, to name a few. However, internal inspiration is needed to supersede the image and reputation of her role-models. In crafting her own vision Eleonora looked towards her own reality for inspiration. Over the years she had taught several fine art classes at UCLA and Pasadena City College.
Key clients include DreamWorks Records, Blue Note Records, Adams Media, EON Editions, Sunday London Times Magazine, Les Inrockuptibles France and Argentina, and newspapers like La Nación and Clarín.
Her art has also been exhibited in the United States, Spain, and South America, including 777 Art Gallery, Los Angeles; Centro Cultural Recoleta, Buenos Aires, Argentina; APA Travelling Award Exhibition, USA; Photo LA, Los Angeles, CA; Focus on Aids, Los Angeles, CA; Huckleberry Fund, Los Angeles, CA; John Cleary Gallery, Houston, TX; AIPAD, New York, NY and Center for Contemporary Arts, Abilene, Tx.
