Matteo Placucci

Photojournalist

Switzerland
I firmly believe that each of us is a witness of our time. And that this time should be documented.
Matteo Placucci

Matteo is a photojournalist born in 1983 on the Adriatic coast. His experience in the world of photography began in 2017. During a long journey of two years, he felt the need to tell about his surroundings. And the stories of those people who were sharing a part of their lives with him.

Empathy, sensitivity and the ability to listen are the cornerstones of photography that are developing day by day with him. And he was able to grow during his recent time in Rome studying photojournalism. Social issues, political and religious events, as well as environmental conflicts and climate change. These are just some of the topics he overlaps with the common thread of most of his projects: mental health and the emotional sphere of the protagonists of the stories he tells.

Deciding to become a photographer without any academic background was not easy, but a choice dictated by a strong need to document and bear witness. In 2017, choosing this profession, he decided to become an active participant in this testimony.
