Welcome to the Maltese islands as seen through the lens of Gino Galea. This is the product of many decades of passion and experience in the art of photography and a will to excel in not only capturing the scene but also in doing so with an artistic flair and perspective.
In this vast image bank, where new images are constantly being introduced, the main focus lays on the characteristics, beauty and the unique charm of Malta, Gozo and Comino. Gino’s photography displays an exceptional level of balance between the simple, the aesthetic and the artistic. From portrait commissions to his extensive photographic depictions of the beauty of the Maltese archipelago, his award-winning style captures the atmosphere of the scene to an unprecedented degree. This is what transforms an image into a work of art. Whether in high-quality print or on canvas, Gino Galea’s images are there to be cherished and enjoyed for posterity: they are moments captured for eternity.
Mainly this unique image bank comprehends landmarks, aerial views, landscapes, seascapes, the people and their identity, their attire and habits besides traditions, culture and much, much more.
All the images that are being produced within the respective galleries were captured by Gino Galea from the 1980’s across the years up to recent times – a span of almost forty years! More recently, he was ably assisted by his offspring namely Alison Kind and Clifford Galea Valletta both expertly mentored by him from their childhood days.
This library contains an invaluable source of superior quality photographic images that can be printed to order on the desired medium of your choice. You could also have your favourite Maltese landmark in “high-resolution form” for the printed media, or perhaps to be used online – the choice lies entirely with you! Just combine your preferred image with the printing material of your choice and you will have a fine art print that enhances the décor of your home or offices at a reasonable cost. The price range varies according to the medium, material and size being ordered. This could be a “digital file” for printed/online jobs, images printed on canvas, fine art, a simple print or any other medium.
Each gallery within the library is constituted by a number of original quality images that are probably a great source of reference to publishers, website designers, tutors, students and potential visitors to the country. Most of the images contained in the library may bring about a sense of nostalgia to the Maltese communities living abroad – they would love to browse through particular galleries as the contents would definitely bring a tear of joy to their eyes while reviving past memories of their beloved home country.

Ever since his younger days he demonstrated a strong inclination towards IT which at those times had been introduced to the national curriculum. Moreover, he was constantly under the watchful eyes of his father, Gino Galea, who mentored his son’s passion for the art of photography slowly but steadily along the course of the years that followed.
In his student-worker days he was engaged by Bank of Valletta plc as a programmer in the IT department. Eventually he went on to consolidate his position as a programmer with another ICT company, Crimsonwing. Clifford further enriched his academic achievements by undergoing studies in photo editing as well the design and construction of websites.
