Pietro Pasolini

Pietro Pasolini was born in Brazil in 1992. Raised in Italy, at the age of 16 he left the peninsula for London and then Hong Kong. From 2013 to 2016 he traveled extensively throughout the Asian continent to document the lives and traditions of isolated communities and ethnic minorities and tribal groups. In September 2016 Pasolini moved to New York, obtaining a master’s degree in photography at the International Center of Photography (ICP). While in America, Pasolini’s work underwent a considerable change, evolving into a careful reflection on the way we perceive and accept our surroundings. His practice questions the notion of reality as objective truth, presenting it instead as an “ever-changing vortex”. Impermanence and vulnerability, essential characteristics of life, become the focus of his work that, through the choice of precarious materials, is predisposed to be reinterpreted throughout time. Pasolini’s works are born through a close cooperation between the artist and nature and it is the proximity with the impermanence of the natural world that gives some of his works an evolutionary ability.

He currently lives and works between New York and Capalbio.
