About the Artist


Gianni Lopergolo has always been an artist. Whether it was his appreciation for architecture at age 15, his passion for the art of special effects as an NYU film student, or his intense love of cinematography and photography – not only as a student, but also as a teacher and a trail-blazing photographer – Gianni thrives on inspiration. Not only getting it, but also giving it.


Gianni joined the Hasbro family in 2002 and completely reinvented the way product photography was done for the toy company. With over a thousand original photographs spanning his impressive Hasbro career, Gianni admits that he has had no formal illustration or set-building training. "Anyone can do what I do," he humbly confesses. "And I want to teach them how. I've taught others in the past and I can teach more."

 
At the young age of 39, Gianni has been living with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease for three years. No longer able to work, but still as passionate about photography as ever, he has compiled this collection of images, which he hopes will teach, entertain and inspire.

 
Gianni currently lives in Rhode Island with his wife, Alex, and their three sons.
