Freelance Documentary & Fine Art Photographer | Art Director & Graphic Designer – based in Italy.
My work focuses mainly on social, anthropological and humanitarian issues.
I am particularly interested in the development of personal projects that give a real, current and, I hope, true vision of what is unfolding in front of us.
My long term project “BEAUTY IN HELL: Beauty over Drama” focuses on finding and documenting the beauty (and not the drama) which, I strongly believe, is always present, even in some of the most difficult realities around the world.
In the last few years my photographic work has received a number of international awards (PX3, LensCulture, IPA, Allard Prize and HIPA finalist among others) and was exhibited in various locations around the world (Biennale dell'Arte, Venice - Espace Beaurepaire, Paris - GHISLA Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Locarno - Arles Photo Festival - Palazzo Cusani, Milan - http://www.tonycorocher.com/photography-awards/).
I’ve collaborated with Companies/Individuals from all over the world. Usually, I work from my private Studio on the Italian hills near Venice, but you may find me around the world on assignments or private projects.
My 20 year experience stretches into a wide range of Design/Art/Photography areas: Graphic/Web Design to Concept Design, from classic Photography to Photojournalism/Reportage (my true passions), from Mobile Applications to Software Design, from analyzing the User Experience to evaluating Usability/Accessibility, from consulting to brand restyling.
