My name is Andrea Dapueto, I am a photographer very concerned in social issues, who uses the camera to inspect the contemporary world with an introspective point of view.
I’ve started with photography in 1992 and up to 2000 I’ve collaborated with the Italian daily paper “Il Secolo XIX”. My work focuses mainly on problematic geo-political areas such as Afghanistan, Palestine, Latvia, Latin America and India.
From 1999 to 2001, I’ve gained photographic experience working in London and Copenhagen. In 2001, I’ve traveled to Afghanistan and a year later to the Palestinian territories.
I’ve collaborated as assistant with the “Toscana Photographic Workshop” for the master classes of Alex Maioli, Alexandra Boulat and David Halan Harvey. In 2004, I’ve collaborated with the “Consulta giovanile del Comune di Tortona” for a photographic workshop and I work for “CEI (Conferenza Episcopale Italiana)” preparing a documentary campaign on the churches built in Rome after World War 2.
I also collaborate with Bob Sacha, Ivo Saglietti and Stanley Green for the project in progress named “Focus on Monferrato”. In the same year I took part in the exposition “Genova del saper fare” for the celebration of “Genova European Capital of Culture 2004”.
In 2005, I participated to the Mediterranean biennale with his work on Palestina.
