For six decades, World Press Photo has been expanding its mission as an independent nonprofit, drawing on experience to guide visual journalists, storytellers, and audiences around the world.
Benedetta Ristori is a freelance photographer currently based in Rome. Her work focuses on the tensions that exist between forms, such as a human head or a geometric shape, and the space which they occupy. Crucial concepts of her stylistic research include decadence, abandonment, emptiness and new approach to classic beauty.
In 2014 is interviewed by the magazine Vanity Fair – Style.it in the Emerging Photographers section. In 2015 Benedetta is one of the finalist of the ‘Next Photographer Award’ by D&AD in partnership with Getty Images. In 2016 one photo of her project “Lay Off” wins the People category in the 16th Smithsonian Magazine photo contest. The same year her project “Lay Off” is selected by Vogue Italia for the photographic section Photostories.
She focuses now on various personal documentary photography projects.
