View of Europe

About Fulvio Zanettini

Born in Rome in 1958, trained as a technical draughtsman, freelance photographer and photo reporter since 1988, associated photographer with the Cologne agency laif - Agentur für Photos & Reportagen since 1995. Numerous worldwide photo documentaries, commissioned photography for various aid organisations and publishing houses. Cameraman for various television stations in Germany, freelance lecturer for photography, video and digital image design, with his own workshops.

For more than twenty years I have been photographing "places in transition" in Europe and worldwide (including Nigeria, South Africa, Nepal, Argentina, Jordan, Palestine ...), from unusual perspectives and always with unusual light effects. "View of Europe" is part of a photo-documentary art project that I started over 20 years ago. The focus is on light and the stories it tells - unique to each city.
