Andrea and Our Own World

  • Photographer
    Alessandro Mazzola
  • Prize
    Gold in People / Portrait

Andrea is my nephew. He has a disease in the spectrum of autism and he is not able to communicate and has limited motility. His day is marked by lovely actions which I followed for almost a year trying to catch his thoughts. Our ones are focused on protecting him, constantly thinking on what will happen after us.

Alessandro, born in 1976. He meets Photography thanks to Simone Durante and he attends several workshops with Italian photographers. Afterwards he joins "Istituto Italiano di Fotografia" and Sara Munari classes to whom he is deeply grateful. Photography for Alessandro is a sane obsession. It's a way to tell emotions, to imagine and discover new worlds and to catch and give back the emotional and fragile side of his subjects.
