Matteo Pellegrinuzzi

Documentary photographer

Photographer for 20 years, I work on reportages on social issues. My commitment is to give voice to the voiceless people.

To me the extraordinary power of photography is that it fixes an instant for eternity and that moment, immortalized on film, will thus become the memory of something that one day may no longer exist.

Contacts
I started to fall in love of with photography when I was just 4 years old.
Flash forward to today, I’m still in love with photography, and I’ve been working as a full time photographer for the past twenty years.
My work experience spans from press assignments and reportages to exhibitions and portraits.
When I’m not taking pictures or riding a bike, I am probably teaching or drinking a tea.
Eight years ago I decided to make analog photography a central part of my work, and I often get to shoot portraits or reportage assignments using my medium format camera.

I’ve been living in Paris for the last twelves years and I have been working between France, Italy and USA on specific projects.
My last project The Bronx-La Villette, a collection of portraits from La Villette neighborhood (Paris) and The Bronx neighborhood (NYC), has been displayed in several exhibitions both in Paris and NYC, supported by the Paris city hall and NYC local communities.
My photographs have been published on international newspapers and magazines since 2002.


Photography

I mainly work with analog cameras (medium and large format). In my portfolio you may find some samples of my portraits and reportages work.

Video

I’ve been working as a cinematographer (narrative and documentary films) for 15 years and I’d love to hear more about your video projects.

Darkroom Techniques

I can personally craft your black and white prints. I use traditional photographic darkroom techniques to create your prints.

To me the extraordinary power of photography is that it fixes an instant for eternity and that moment, immortalized on film, will thus become the memory of something that one day may no longer exist.
