My name is Luigi Orru and I am a professional photographer from Rome, where I live and work. Since 2007 I have been working as a live music photographer on both the national and international scenes. • Since 2011 I have been the official photographer of the Rock in Roma festival where have photographed extremely important performers. In 2014, I was chosen by the Rolling Stones as their Italian photographer for their concert held at the Circo Massimo in Rome. In recent years, I have created several album covers and images for booklets featuring Italian performers such as: Nesli, Noemi, Fabrizio Moro, Jovanotti, Velvet, Nina Zilli and many others. • My photos have been published on prestigious national and international magazines such as: Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, The Observer, Guitar US, The Guardian, Classic Rock USA, Classic Rock Italia, Music Radar, SE Norway and many others.
My archive is distributed by the Contrasto agency, a reference point for quality photography. This group of photographers with whom I collaborate not only works in close contact with the world of information and culture in general, but also it makes it possible for Contrasto to maintain its key role in the fine art photography field. The extremely wide range of activities that it covers (the production and distribution of images for journalism, for advertising and corporate purposes, for fashion and the publishing industry) is guaranteed also by the numerous organisations it represents, including Magnum Photos, the outstanding agency founded by Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson.
