Once again, the movements of #WhileBlack and Black Lives Matter have been invoked by the swift succession of recent incidents reminding us that the pandemic is not solely from without.
Gian Marco Sanna (Rome, 1993) started to experiment with photography at the age of 17 thanks to the passion transmitted by his father who gifted him an old Pentax for his birthday.
From 2012 to 2015 he studied at the Roman school of photography where he acquired the techniques from analogue to digital. From 2015 he attended the D.O.O.R. academy, experimenting with new techniques of documentary photography. He took part in workshops with Ricardo Cases, Federico Clavarino, Max Pinckers, Antonio M. Xoubanova.
From 2015 to 2017 he worked at “Malagrotta’s area” where there is the biggest refuse dump in Europe.
In 2016 he found L.I.S.A. collective, where he works at fanzines and editing.
In 2017 Urbanautica Institute recently published the book about this work, launching it in Paris.
