Giacomo Balla was an Italian painter and an important exponent of Futurism. He began his career as a self-taught artist; he inherited a passion for photography from his father, an industrial chemist as well as an amateur photographer. During his stays in Turin, Rome, and Paris, Balla gained experience at various academies and inspired many young people eager for modernity, including Boccioni and Severini.
