Giulio Piscitelli

Giulio Piscitelli (Naples, 1981) came to photography in 2008, after graduating in Communication Sciences, and began working with press agencies in Italy and abroad. Until 2010, he collaborated with the Archivio Fotografico Parisio in Naples as an archivist and post-producer of images. Some of his works have been exhibited in places such as Villa Pignatelli, the Festival Internazionale del Giornalismo di Perugia, the Angkor Photo Festival and the Visa Pour L'Image Festival. His work is mainly related to current events: in recent years, in particular, he has focused on the immigration crisis in Europe, producing "Da qui a qui", his first long-term project which inspired the book "Harraga. In viaggio bruciando le frontiere" (2017); he has also witnessed international crises such as the coups in Egypt and Syria, and the wars in Iraq and Ukraine. His photo essays have been published by newspapers and national and international magazines ("The New York Times", "L'Espresso", "Internazionale", "Stern", "Io Donna", "Newsweek", "Vanity Fair", "Time", "La Stampa", "Vrji" and others). He has been represented by the Contrasto agency since 2013.
