About Marco Caterini
Born in Arezzo in 1976, Marco is visual artist and independent photographer.
He achieved his education through several Italian and foreign institutions, including University of Siena, London College of Communication, and Goldsmiths College where he completed a Master of Arts in Photography and Urban Cultures in the Department of Sociology.
His travels through Europe, the Middle East, but especially long stays in Southeast Asia and England, allowed him to investigate the various aspects of urbanism and the morphogenesis of contemporary cities.
In his images he represents the urban traces of contemporary political, economical and social trends, making evident the close relationship between capital, power and space, which is deeply influencing globally the shape of cities and their suburbs and facilitating the emergence of phenomena such as the exponential growth in size and number of cities, megacities and large urban conglomerates while deepening social and economical inequalities.
