About

Welcome to Giovanna Gallery. Images with soul.. Take a journey to another place, find peace, serenity & see the world through the eyes of a well traveled photographer Giovanna Aryafara. 

Giovanna’s love of photography started 40 years ago with her first ever job managing a black and white photography Studio in Wellington, New Zealand. She then moved into wedding photography/styling for 8 years in Australia and that lead her to becoming a school photographer in Sydney and New Zealand for many years. In 1997 Giovanna started her own buying business which required her to travel extensively in India, Bali, Nepal & Burma.  This gave her the opportunity to travel to exotic countries and pursue her love of photography by capturing people in their natural environment and telling their story without words.

Giovanna has had 4 exhibitions in Australia. For the past 15 years she has produced greeting cards from her images through the Australian company, Spirit Publishing. She travels to India yearly to keep adding to her Gentle Spirit range. Last December was her first trip to The Omo Tribes.

Her love for photography, art, fabrics and tribal crafts come together at her highly regarded Bali home-wares and lifestyle stores Bungalow Living.

Giovanna currently lives in Bali with her husband, their 4 poodles and a Bali cat.
