My name is Andrea Alfano. I make my living from photography, working
on assignment as well as on my personal documentary projects, with
which I tell stories on issues I feel emotionally close to.
I use photography as a means to understand the complex dynamics of
human events and I have never lost sight of my true purpose: to establish
an in-depth and intimate relationship with the stories I document.
With my personal projects, I have recently won the Magnum Photos residency
Langhe Project directed by Alex Webb and Harry Gruyaert, the IV New York
Times Portfolio Review and the LensCulture SPA’15, among others.
