Alfonso De Gregorio is an Italian process-oriented conceptual documentary photographer. At the intersection of art and documentary, his idea of photography is to raise powerful and political questions about the world we live in. He believes that photography succeeds in doing so when it spotlights social, cultural, and environmental realities, and provides us with new perspectives and lenses for interpreting where we stand.
Alfonso uses his cybersecurity background to research novel processes. Assessed their narrative power, he matches them to a subject-matter and develops the concept. The final projects are the result of the combination of the designed photographic process and the concept, backed by his craft.
In his latest projects, Alfonso repurposed imaging technology for doing video surveillance to the spaces that lays at the intersection of art and documentary. He turned surveillance technology towards himself, to record the resulting introspective investigations. In so doing, he aimed to address wider realities that the viewers may have experienced in their lives too.
Alfonso is a two-times Winner of the Allard Prize Photography competition, recipient of a Honourable Mention at the 2018 IPA, two-times Nominee to the 2017-2018 Fine Art Photography Awards, recipient of a Honourable Mention at the MonoVisions Photography Awards 2018, and Finalist of HIPA 2017-2018.
