Born in Palermo, Italy, Mauro Benedetti has had a passion for photography and travel since his 20s. He has traveled to Africa, the Americas and throughout Europe with his cameras, seeking pristine landscapes and the sun’s best angle upon them. After mentoring with photographer Livio Mancini and later with Alex Webb, Mauro delved into a street documentary photography, which has become his focus since 2011.
The Italian Journal magazine publishes Mauro’s work in the column “Light Upon” in their quarterly issues. He is a member of MakroPress since 2011. He resides in Rome, Italy and part time in New York, where in both places, he runs photography workshops.
