Francesco Berlingerio

English / Italiano

InfoI'm a photographer, specializing in capturing ordinary and particular life scenes. My images celebrate the soul of the places I visit, the dedication and integrity, of those whom I met, and their life stories, which inspired me. I believe that, individuals, must strive understand the significance of human culture as a value, so that, global peace can be achieved.

BioFrancesco Berlingerio was born in Brindisi, Italy, in 1980. Upon his graduation in Sociology, he progressed his professional career in the UK, in the field of child protection, and since then, he has been working for a significant number of Local Authorities. He became interested in photography, when he turned 23, he got carried away, and, to build his knowledge, he immersed himself in the study of analogue photography, darkroom film development. His photography projects, are focused on the unrelenting inequality of human conditions.
