Gildo was born and raised in Astoria where he still lives. He began his love affair with photography when he was 13 years old when he was gifted a 35mm camera.

That world took him to Studio 54 and extensive personal travel to 32 countries. He visits Venice every year. His iconic portraits range from Andy to Trump. He is finishing a project with the Government of Montserrat Museum called “Paradise Not Lost: The Ghost Project After Hugo and Before the Volcano”.
