Director Biography - Mattia Gaido

Born in Rivoli, Italy, in December 1994.
Graduated at Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin.
I identify in reportage photography the primary mean of visual story telling, where the analyzed situation passes through voices of locals and the search for photographic result characterized by visually appealing aesthetics, as well as rich narrative elements.
Previous trips to Africa, Asia and the Middle East have allowed me to refine the technique and develop a personal way of telling the reality encountered.
I usually work on contemporary issues as well as anthropological and documentary works.
