My name is Michele Crameri, born in 1983, a Italian-Swiss freelance photojournalist
My passion for photography began at an early age, I was about six years old when I took my mother's car photo camera to go around taking pictures. A few years later, I had to follow the war in the Balkans closely, with my father making charitable trips to Caritas, I was immediately attracted to the photographs and stories of his travels in conflict areas. Since then I have always had an eye on humanistic themes.
In 2003 I graduated in Graphic-Design and in 2004 I graduated in Marketing. I worked for a few years in the advertising industry, but then in 2007 I decided to dedicate myself to my old love, photography.
I started collaborating with a local newspaper, in 2008 I decided to open my photographic studio, where I was almost exclusively engaged in fashion and wedding photography. Over the years, I realized I missed traveling, so I decided to follow the truth and begin to dedicate myself totally to photojournalism. I started to travel to Israel by the end of 2010 with Palestine during the Arab Spring and documenting it.
Since then I've been shooting various countries, but with a particular preference in South America, where I worked for 2 NGOs operating an Ecuador.
Following reading the book "Man Afraid of Man" by Ryszard Kapuscinsk I started researching the situation of an increasingly violent and bloody society in Central and South America, finding that one of the most popular and respected works of "Latin America is the surety professor, paid killer, and the idea of my long-term project" The Work of Sicario "started in Honduras in 2015.
