Alessandro Scarpa was born in 1985. His passion for photography sprang from a humanitarian journey in Ol Moran, Kenya. In 2007, he debuted as a photographer with the collective exhibition “Jumbo Africa!”. His style, combining social issues, the importance of artistic sensitivity and the pleasure of discovery, opened him the way to many collaborations.
In 2010, he joined Help for Children’s humanitarian aid convoy heading for Byelorussia. This experience resulted in “Finchè soffia il vento di Chernobil”, a book written by Francesca Bellemo and illustrated with Scarpa’s shots. Lately, these photos were gathered in an exhibit called “Il male invisibile”.
At the end of 2010, Scarpa began to collaborate with Nikon Italy, which published on its site, under the section Nikon Life, some of his pictures taken in Gomel, Prague and during the visit of Pope Benedict XVI in Venice.
Since 2009 he has been involved in Urban Exploration with Carlo Albertini, an adventurous photographic project which gave birth to the idea of “EX” exhibition (www.project-ex.it).
