Nicolo Filippo Rosso (b. 1985) is an Italian documentary photographer based in Colombia. He graduated with a degree in Literature at the Universitá Degli Studi Di Torino, in Italy. In 2011, he became interested in photography while living in an indigenous community in the Putumayo region, in the Amazon basin. His work is committed to long-term projects and he works on editorial assignments for clients such as Bloomberg News, The Washington Post, BusinessWeek, Le Point, Der Spiegel, Sette Corriere, Vice, Internazionale, Il Reportage and for international NGOs such as Americares, and Catholic Relief Services (CRS). Since 2016, Nicoló has been documenting the impact of the exploitation of coal on the land and the people of Colombia’s La Guajira peninsula. This work has been exhibited worldwide, and it has appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers’ publications. Currently, he is mostly dedicated to documenting the migration of Venezuelans who cross the border with Colombia heading to other Latin-American countries: that work received a World Press Photo Award in 2020.
