Schools Attended:Scuola Romana di Fotografia
I'm born in Rome and live in my hometown. I started taking photographs at age 25, as a studio assistant and ceremony, and then approach the social and ethnological reportage photography. I obtained my first certificate in Reportage at Graffiti in Rome.
In 2012 I won the second prize of the scholarship named Rolando Fava and, in the same year, the Roman School of Photography assigns me, after submitting the project Fronte Del Porto, a scholarship for a Master of Reportage.
In 2013, I'm the Leica Award finalist and winner of the competition in the category Portraits Of National Geographic Competition.
As a result of the global economic crisis, 10 year-old Andrei's father was fired from his job in Romania, and his mother moved to Italy to find work. As the months passed, this separation took its toll. The absence of Andrei's mother, combined with his father’s alcohol abuse, became increasingly tough to bear — this is his story.
