Camillo Pasquarelli
born in Rome (1988) and based between Rome and Genoa.

Camillo is mostly interested in personal and long-term projects trough the combination of the anthropological approach and the photographic medium.

In the last five years he has been working in the valley of Kashmir, India, at first documenting the political conflict between the population and the Indian administration, and later trying to explore a more personal and oneiric approach to the issue.

In 2017 he received one of the Alexia Foundation Student Grant to keep working in the region.

He is one of the 20 artists selected for the FOAM Talent 2020.

Camillo is a lecturer at the Quasar Institute for Advanced Design in Rome.
