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.
After several years of traveling through Central and South America, he briefly settled in Buenos Aires from 2015 to 2017 where he expanded photographic studies approaching analogue photography, before returning to Europe in 2017. The end of 2019 brought him back to his home of Bene Vagienne, which would become the protagonist of his project “Volver” (“Come back”). Through his work, Mauro was awarded a scholarship to study a Master’s in Artistic and Documentary photography at the University of Arts TAI (URJC) in Madrid Spain, where he currently lives.
