Graduated in Communication Sciences, Marco Panzetti (Italy, 1981) is a freelance documentary photographer, multimedia journalist and visual artist. His work focuses on contemporary issues related to social injustice, migration/displacement and collective identity. Although photography remains at the core of his documentary work, his visual language embraces (and constantly experiments with) different audiovisual formats (video, audio and VR) to create short documentary films, immersive multimedia pieces and art installations. His long-term body of work on the European migrant crisis, ‘The Idea of Europe’ (2015 – 2017) received international recognition including an Honorable Mention at the 2017 Lange-Taylor Prize. Different parts composing the same work were awarded the first prize at the 2017 Migration Media Award and the 2018 National Photojournalism Award of Spain.
