Ciro Battiloro
Photographer

Ciro Battiloro was born near Naples in 1984. His studies have included the classics and Philosophy. Shooting with an analog camera marked his entry into photography, and remains with him to this day.

His affinities have drawn him to documentary work, social reportage and long term stories.

He has traveled through Africa, in Senegal and Morocco in particular, and also in Iran and The Balkans.

Naples and its surrounding microcosmos have become the center of his latest long term project, based, in particular, in the neighborhood called Rione Sanità facing difficulty. The project started in 2015 when he took part in the second edition of LAB/per un laboratorio irregolare, lead by the neapolitan photographer Antonio Biasiucci.
