"Alessandro Cosmelli was born in Livorno on October the 18th 1972.
He obtained a geochemistry degree at the University of Pisa.
He experienced his sensibility towards image arts as assistant at his uncle's restoration studio, so he began his study about photography as autodidact.
After living in the United States, from 1997 to 2002 he travelled through different places of the Third World (Ghana, Suriname, West Sahara, Haiti, Nigeria, Eritrea, Ivory Coast, Philippine, Perù and Azerbaijan) realizing several reportages.
During these photographic journeys, he decided to concentrate his work on reportage as a professionist by observing the dramatic condition of these populations.
At the moment his work is focused on different kind of reportages: he began using colors and looking into our contemporary society.
Nowadays Alessandro Cosmelli lives and works in Rome.

He joined Contrasto in 2003."
