Carlo Pettinelli is a photographer, trainer, counsellor (talk terapist), mediator of self-portrait workshops, and perhaps something else. After graduating in Statistics he devoted himself entirely to photography: he makes numerous photographic reportages collaborating with magazines, with publishers, with photojournalistic agencies and with companies for which he has edited communication works. He carries out collaborations with spaces and exhibition galleries (with more than 40 between collective and personal exhibitions), receiving prizes and awards and inserting his photos in some public and private collections. He started a photography training and teaching activity (he teaches at the “Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma”). In 2018 he specialized in the use of photography in the helping relationship and in self-observation.
“I love synthesis and I think photography can be seen as an extraordinary subtraction operation, a process of sublimation of vision”.
