Giorgio Negro

Italy, 1959
Giorgio Negro was born in Turin in 1959, to a Swiss mother and an Italian father. He spent his childhood in the peaceful surroundings of the Italian province, in Susa. At the University he graduated in Electronics Engineering. After 10 years as a software specialist, he decided to work for the International Committee of the Red Cross and then be involved for 25 years in humanitarian operations in many war zones around the world: Chechnya, Colombia, Peru, Chad, Sudan, Israel, Libya, Iraq and other countries.

In 2005 he met Ernesto Bazan and Dario De Dominicis, two Italian photographers through whom he discovered black and white photography and who became his friends and mentors. This marks the beginning of a magical journey into the world of humanistic photography. In the little free time that his challenging work allowed him, Giorgio took photographs alone or with Bazan and De Dominicis in Latin America. In 2017, he left his humanitarian job to devote himself to his photographic projects.
COMPLETED PROJECTS- In 2019 he published his first photo book "Pathos" - a personal vision of Latin America- "Um outro Francisco" ["Another Francis"] - a photo-video project about the amazing veneration of the Italian Saint Francis of Assisi in the northeast of Brazil, with Dario De Dominicis
ONGOING PHOTO PROJECTS- Photographic exploration of the facets of Switzerland through the lens of a panoramic camera- On the traces of its Mediterranean roots: a return “home” to rediscover today's Italy- Various projects on socio-ecological issues in Peru and Bolivia
