Andrea Pistolesi

Country: Italy 🇮🇹

Born in Florence, Andrea studied geography at the local university. He is based today between Italy and Bangkok. Andrea is a photographer specialized in anthropological and social reportage in every part of the world, working on assignment for major magazines. He has published over 40 photographic books (Indonesia, New Zealand, Morocco, South Africa, The Land of Buddha, Hinduism, Eastern Christianity, Believers, World Markets, Catholic Pilgrimages) in addition to illustrated travel books on the major European subjects. He is the sole author of the photos in the Bonechi Publishers US book series (60 titles).
Andrea has become especially known for his research on the use of existing light which he combines with a formal yet personalized composition of his images and a very advanced
digital manipulation. He is holding workshops every year on Geographical and Digital Photography.
The approach to Fine Art Photography came as a natural evolution of this professional career. His work has been exhibited many times both in Italy and abroad. He participated with a personal show at the VII Biennale di Fotografia in Turin and won the 1998 First Award in the Italian selection of the Fuji European Press Award.
