Michele Belloni
Documentary Photography


Born into a family of deep Tuscan origins I picked up my first camera as a child and decided not to leave it anymore. My true passion is the art of capturing the human comedy through a camera and to travel around the world, photographing the differences that make us human.

Over the years I documented the lives of the Spanish Quarters of Naples, in southern Italy, the devastation of the concentration camps as Dachau in Germany, the everyday life of young marginalized Italian skaters, the earthquake in L’Aquila, the ancient crafts of rural Tuscany, the social substrates of the historic markets of Rome and the devastating effects of anorexia on young women to name few.

I’ve been published on some of the most known magazine and worked with brands like National Geographic, Geo Magazine, Getty Images, Leica, Nikon, EyesOpen, Street Photography Magazine, Edge Of Humanity, La Repubblica, Il Tempo, Il Messaggero, Il Corriere Della Sera.
