Valerio Vincenzo was born in Naples, Italy in 1973. He lives and works between Paris and Milan. Before becoming a photographer in 2004, he worked as a strategy consultant in France and then as administrator for the French NGO Action Against Hunger in Indonesia. He currently collaborates with the international press while leading a number of artistic projects.
The Borderline project, ongoing since 2007, was awarded the 2nd prize of the 2016 Canon Silver Camera in the Netherlands and the 2013 Prix Louise Weiss of European journalism, first time that such an award is granted to a photo project. It has been exposed numerous times, in particular on the railings of the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris in 2015 and at the Street Art Museum in St. Petersburg in 2016. In 2019, four open air exhibits will take place in France and Germany.
Valerio's projects have been presented in various photo festivals in Europe (Images Vevey-Switzerland, Arles-Nuit de l'Année, PhotoEspana Madrid-Descubrimientos, Mois de la Photo Paris, Boutographies Montpellier,...).
He is a member of the French creative platform Hans Lucas and he's represented by DeBeeldunie in the Netherlands.
