Dario De Dominicis (Rome 1965) began working as a professional photographer in 1993. His work is published in several Italian and international newspapers (Espresso, Newsweek, Le Monde, Sunday Times, El Pais, Dier Zeit). In 1999 he was commissioned a reportage in black and white about life inside the Pontifical Roman Major Seminary. The photos were published by the Vicariate of Rome on the Jubilee of 2000. Since then he has increasingly turned his attention to his personal research and his projects. In 2001 he completed a project, lasted four years, on the actual monarchist movement in Italy. The work was published inside the weekly insert of the Corriere della Sera. From 2002 to 2009 he had teached photojournalism at the Roberto Rossellini State Institute for Cinema and Television in Rome. In 2004, he published his first book in black and white ”A Cuban story”, issues by Postcart. This long-term project summarizes an investigation of fifteen years aimed to follow the Cuba’s transformation after the fall of the socialist block in Europe. In 2009 he moved to Rio de Janeiro with the purpose to follow Brazilian socio-political events. From 2011 to 2014 he collaborates assiduously with Le Monde for which realises a big number of reportages, including seven City Portraits about different Brazilian cities that were daily published during the Fifa World Cup's opening. In 2012 and 2013 he is called to make the visual documentation of the book “The Rubber Soldier”, issued by “Escrituras Publishing” in 2015. In 2013 he held a workshop at the International Photography Festival “Paraty em Foco”. From 2013 to 2016 he carries out a photographic research on a religious event taking place every year in northeast of Brazil, the second largest pilgrimage for the Feast of Saint Francis in the world. With this project, Dario will partecipate as one of the protagonists in a documentary film about photography and its interaction with contemporary society, produced by Irê Brasil.
