Camillo Pasquarelli
1988, Italy  
Based between Rome and Genoa.

Camillo is interested in long-term projects adopting photography as a tool of knowledge contaminated by the self-reflective approach of anthropology.

In the last five years he has been working extensively in the valley of Kashmir, India, at first documenting the political conflict between the population and the Indian administration, and later trying to explore a more personal and oneiric approach to the issue.
He is one of the 20 artists selected for the FOAM Talent 2020.


Camillo is a lecturer at the Quasar Institute for Advanced Design in Rome. 

His projects received several awards such as LensCulture B&W, Shortlist at PH Museum Grant, Best Rising Talent at Gomma Grant, Alexia Foundation Grant, Fotoleggendo Award, Kuala Lumpur International Photo Awards and Futures Photography.

His photographs have been exhibited in festivals, galleries and museums in US, Italy, England, Australia, Spain, India, Israel, Lithuania, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates.
