Alessandro (Italy, 1973) is a self-trained documentary photographer, which has a special interest for stories in East Europe and Ex-Soviet Union Countries. His career as a photographer started at the end of 2008 after working for almost five years with Medecins Sans Frontieres as a biologist. Photography for Alessandro is the link between those who have a story to tell and those willing to hear it.
The Turkic Wolf it’s a journey through the daily life of Gagauzian people, a community with Turkic origins that convert to Christian Orthodox Church. It is a portrait of a very tiny autonomous region where it seems that time has stopped at our post-war period.
Alessandro’s works have been published in The Guardian, l’OBS, Le Monde, CNN, Mariclaire, D della Repubblica, Vanity Fair, GEO Italy, Revue 21 among others.
Alessandro is a member of CAPTA Collective and he is based in Barcelona where he lives with his family.
