Simone Ludovico

He was born in 1977

Photography has always been a sort of daily diary, a means to participate in the life flowing.

After a degree in Urban Planning, with a thesis on the relationship between photography and cartography to build a point of view on the North of Milan’s territory, he
started working with a photo agency in Milan and then with socio-cultural associations like a documentary photographer

For 3 years he has worked in Pavia with associations that deal with mental and physical disability and situations of fragility and social disadvantage, using photography and video to describe their work. He also set up a laboratory into the jail in which the inmates, after a few lessons on photographic composition and technique, try to take pictures, especially portraits.

He is engaged in long-term projects on urban spaces and ethnic minorities.

He currently lives in Pavia.
