My name is Alex Masi and I am an Italian documentary photographer deeply committed to spreading awareness - and supporting action towards children's rights.
After having completed a degree in Photojournalism at the London College of Communication in 2006, I have begun to investigate socio-environmental issues in countries such as India, Afghanistan, Iraq, and most recently in Nigeria.
Since then, I have devoted to exposing peculiar stories of human-made injustice, focusing mainly on children: their living conditions, their health and their human rights.
I strongly believes documentary photography ought to be an active catalyst in promoting awareness, political and juridical change, and in fostering action by individuals, NGOs and governments.
Photography is an essential channel for audiences to learn with immediacy, and to subconsciously empathise with other people facing realities away from our own immediate surroundings and personal experiences. I strive to portray my subjects with intimacy and meaning.
With my photographic skills, I aspire to convey emotions, and to present images that stimulate our deepest feelings: our sense of compassion, brotherhood and justice.
