Giusy de Ceglia is from Molfetta, in the Italian southern region of Puglia.
She started taking pictures when she was eleven years old with a $30 camera and became a pro at eighteen.
Currently she is completing the post-production of her upcoming photo book, which will present an impressive collection of the most powerful women portraits she has shot throughout her artistic journey. From her best friends in her hometown when she was fifteen to top models and famous actresses, they will all be featured in what Giusy calls "the gallery of my life". For this photo book, she has shot among others with the iconic 90’s supermodel ÈVE SALVAIL in New York, dressed for the occasion by Jean Paul Gaultier.
Giusy is also a successful independent model scout. All the models she has scouted and launched have booked major runway shows at Fashion Weeks and Haute Couture shows in Paris, Milan and London. She started in 1994, by scouting the late German model Roland Nienhaus. She shot his very first book and launched him in Milan. Roland then moved on to work with all the biggest international brands and designers, becoming a top model in the 90's.
Giusy firmly believes her best photo is yet to be taken and keeps striving to capture inner beauty through "snapshots of the soul", as she calls her own photos.
