Wherever I am, I always consider myself a guest and, in return, I am almost always treated as a guest. The camera then becomes an extraordinary passport’ Paolo Pellegrin

Paolo Pellegrin, born in Rome in 1964, is one of the most esteemed living photojournalists, a tireless witness of conflicts, environmental disasters and stories of people often on the margins of society. A member of the Magnum Photos agency since 2005, he immediately stood out for the humanity of his gaze, a characteristic that is reflected in his shots.
Pellegrin first studied architecture at La Sapienza University in Rome and then photography at the Italian Institute of Photography. A multiple award-winner, he won, among others, the W. Eugene Smith Grant in humanistic photography and the Robert Capa Gold Medal, both in 2006, and ten World Press Photo Awards.
Published by the New York Times, TIME, Newsweek and many other magazines, his work is recounted in Le Stanze della Fotografia: an anthology that ranges from shoots in areas of dramatic conflict, such as Iraq and Gaza, to those on environmental issues, such as the tsunami in Japan and the fires in Australia, to shots on ongoing climate change, immortalised in the images depicting Antarctica. There are also reports on the United States, those on refugees in Lesbos and many other missions that the photographer has documented with his powerful and emotional style. His photos have the ability to capture the viewer and strong empathy with the subjects of his photos, which tell the theme of encountering the other, as in those dedicated to migrants.
