Max Pelagatti is a photographer born in Tokyo in 1988 to an Italian father and Japanese mother, both lyric singers. He spent his childhood in Italy and Japan; as a teenager, his family settled in Italy, his father’s homeland. By nature curious and reserved, even as a child, the camera was his chosen means of expression.
His art is strongly influenced by the cultural milieu of his upbringing. Many international professional photographers contributed to his artistic development.
Despite the fact that his primary interest is in commercial and fine art photography, he continues to nurture his love for the performing arts through his work with musicians and theater companies in Rome, Tokyo and New York.
He currently lives in Brussels where he runs his own activity as photographer and instructor.
