About - George Cavalletto

George Cavalletto

I’ve been taking photos of family members for the last 70  years. But only in the last three years have I approached taking such photos as a conscious aesthetic undertaking.

In my mid 70s I retired from being a college professor of sociology. With a seriousness equal to that of my previous commitment to teaching sociology, I have taken up an apprenticeship in photography. Greatly helpful has been course work at the school of the International Center for Photography in New York, where for the last two years I have been a student in its Special Track Program.
