Alessandro Grassani

Milan

I was born in Pavia in 1977. I decided to become a photographer so I could tell stories and show others who don't have the chance to see and know what they don't have. I love long term projects and chose to investigate those levels of society that the mass media rarely pays attention to. I have collaborated with the main national and international newspapers, including The New York Times, Sunday Times, Sette del Corriere della Sera and Vanity Fair. My works have been exhibited in one-man and collective shows in Italy, London, Madrid, Tokyo, New York, and at the Recontres d’Arles and were awarded at the Sony World Photography Awards, Days Japan International Awards, Luis Valtuena Humanitarian Photography Award, PX3 International Awards, Premio Lucchetta-Miran Hrovatin, IPA International Photography Award. At present I am represented by the LUZphoto agency. www.luzphoto.com www.alessandrograssani.com ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////Sono nato a Pavia nel 1977.
