Alessandro Vincenzi is a self-trained documentary photographer, who started his career as a photographer at the end of 2008 after working for almost five years with Medecins Sans Frontieres as a biologist. Since the beginning he decided to start a photographic research that took him to Eastern Europe in search of stories that were somehow related to the Soviet past. He found himself working for almost ten years between Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine, Crimea and Russia, feeling attracted to stories that were all linked together by a single concept: the scarce or almost zero visibility in the international media. The less he knew, the more he felt attracted. This spirit has led him to start Lands in Between, a new research on not well-known minorities living in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. At the same time he his working since four years a Man, Water and Fire, an in-depth study on the relation that exist between human being and the surrounding nature in Lanzarote, Canary Island. His works have been published widely, as The Guardian, Der Spiegel, l’OBS, Le Monde, CNN, Mariclaire, D della Repubblica, Vanity Fair, GEO Italy, Geo Russia, Revue 21, among others. He is based in Barcelona where he lives with his family.
