My name is Giacomo d’Orlando and I was born in a popular neighborhood of Verona, a small city in Northern Italy.
Since I was a child photography has been my deepest passion and I’m trying with all myself to transform this passion into my work.
In 2011 I started to work as a photographer in an Advertiser Photographic Studio.
After three and half years, in 2015, I chose to quit the Still-Life photography in order to dedicate myself to my true passion, the reportage.
After some research, I decided that my destination should have been Nepal, so I contacted an italian NGO called “Apeiron Onlus” in Kathmandu which had some interesting projects concerning woman equality and I started to work for them as a volunteer, documenting their projects in exchange for food and stay.
In April 2015 I was involved in the earthquake which destroyed the Kathmandu Valley and I began to document it. I started to follow the police operations, the injured people in the hospitals, the funerals of the victims and the emergency relief camps.
In March 2016, I came back to Nepal in order to document the reconstruction of the city after one year and complete my reportage.
At the same time I dedicated myself in other interesting projects such as the garbage disposal in Kathmandu Valley, the tea production at the border with Darjeeling and a cultural reportage about one of the most remote area of Mid-Western Nepal.
