Kash Gabriele Torsello
Italian photographer Kash finds his greatest inspiration in documenting the daily lives of those who struggle to be free: free from poverty, war, discrimination and ultimately, free from fear.
Unsatisfied as a commercial photographer, he left for India in 1994 with three aims: to experience life in a small village, to live with a holy man - Baba - and to visit a war torn area. He found the first two near Kannyakumari, in the far south of India. It was there also that he first heard of the situation in the north.
Since then his work has focused on the ongoing war in Kashmir, sharing his work with International Media, Human Rights Organizations and UN Agencies.
Soon after the 9/11 terrorist attack, Kash has been travelling to Afghanistan covering various topics of the conflict until he was kidnaped in Helmand province late in 2006.
In the recent years he is working in the cinema industry.
