About me

Michele Cirillo - Autoritratto

Born in 1988, I'm an independent photoreporter and video maker.
I am interested in the use of photography as a way to tell stories focusing on human rights issues, identity and health from around the world and the geopolitical changes of recent years to the subjects of minority, conflicts and marginality.
