Something about Paolo
Paolo was born in Bologna in June 1983, and he has a typical childhood as many other children. His relationship with photography and as photographer enhanced slowly, step by step.
His photography journey started in 2007 when he decided to transform his passion into a professional path. Paolo has obtained many different masters in the photography field, that included; visual communications, reportage, fashion and darkroom printing — attending to John Kaverdash academy, based in Milan. Here he has expanded his professional skills working as an intern and photographer at photojournalistic agency, based in Milan.
He continued to work as a freelance photographer and make the experience travel around the world. His passion and dedication for reportage and documentary photography have brought Paolo to cover and investigate Syria’s crisis. Paolo says “One of my most experience of life as a photographer and human, it has been when I went to Killis. Here I saw the terrible effect of war, where I’ve met many young Syrian women and men escaped from their home because of ISIS and, have found shelter in another country.” Paolo also the past two years, documenting the Syrian crisis in Chios, Athens and Belgrade.
Now he is in Italy, with base in Bologna where he works and lives. He decided to expand his professional skills and research field, obtaining a specialisation in image contemporary. He says ” it was a fundamental step and a massive challenge for me. I come from a specific work field where it is necessary to follow a particular line guide that an excellent photo-reported have to follow. Today, photography has changed a lot and is fundamental, being open-minded and can see a new work perspective. Reportage photography and narrate human being stories will always be a part of me but felt a necessity to move on and explore a new way to see the world and our society.”
