Alex Masi is an Italian award-winning documentary photographer dedicated to exposing peculiar issues of human-made injustice, focusing mainly on children: their living conditions, their health and their human rights. He believes photography to be an essential channel for audiences to learn with immediacy, and to subconsciously empathize with people facing realities away from their immediate surroundings and personal experiences.
In May 2011, ‘The Photographers Giving Back Awards’, in Sweden, assigned Alex a unique grant to draft and implement a plan benefiting one of his subjects in Bhopal, India, and her entire family. Alex strives to produce intimate images that can sensitize viewers in positive, engaging and proactive ways, hoping to contribute towards a slow change in people's behaviour and policy-making. His images have appeared on international publications.
