AUTHOR: Emiliano Pinnizzotto ITALY
Born in 1983, begins to take my first photographs from the earliest memories. Around the age of 18 i directs my photographic passion to Social Reportage, and begins, when it is possible, to travel around the world.
I'm specialized in social portraits, taken in a natural luminosity, with the exclusive use of light available, never constructing or altering the story or image.
I have various publications on magazines and on photographic books, and show my photos in numerous exhibitions in Italy and abroad, the last important: India - Unusual Visions, in Museo Nazionale Delle Civiltà "L.Pigorini" of Rome in May 2017.
