Biography

Carlo Lombardi (b. 1988, Italy) realizes long-term independent projects exploring the possibilities offered by photography, video and sound. His research develops through the analysis of details and the study of atmospheres able to reveal hidden realities related with environmental issues. His approach, more emotional than factual, allow the imagery the space required for a broader interpretation. His interest is focused on natural ecosystems threatened by man, and on the exploration of dynamical equilibrium of coexistence between living organism and non-living materials. 

His projects have been published among others on The British Journal of Photography, IO-Donna - Corriere della sera, GUP magazine and on Der Greif magazine. His work has already been exposed and it will be exposed again in several photo festivals including: Hamburg Triennale, Voies OFF - Arles, Festival della Fotografia Etica, Festival della Fotografia Europea, Fotoleggendo, Fotofestiwal Lodtz, Les Boutographie  etc.
