Mauro Curti_Personal Data and Project Description

Born in a small village in Piemonte, Bene Vagienna, in the province of Cuneo, Italy, self-taught Mauro Curti came to photography later in life. After working several jobs across sectors, he took a basic course in photography, packed his bags and embarked on a autodidactic research trip across Central and South America in which he focussed on actively exploring the medium of photography.
