Giovanni Capriotti

Giovanni is an independent documentary photographer and filmmaker pursuing long-form visual narratives with a focus on unique and intimate stories exposing how time and inevitability of compromise affect individuals, communities, history and the human condition. In addition to his documentary practices, Giovanni deals with brand visual journalism as a Multimedia Image/Video Producer at University of Guelph-Humber, and continues to accept editorial and commercial commissions from an array of fine publications and clients.

He is on the Advisory Board of the Loyalist College Photojournalism Program and runs photography workshops, lectures and talks. Among several accolades that his work has earned him, Giovanni's long-term project "Boys Will Be Boys" gained 1st Place Sport Stories at the 2017 World Press Photo. More recently, his five years project "The Haweaters," was finalist at the Dorothea Lange and Paul Taylor Prize, while ISMEO, the Italian Institute for the Middle and Far East, awarded him a $20,000 grant to follow the footprints of its former president and early Tibet explorer Giuseppe Tucci.

Giovanni's projects have been shown in exhibitions and installations at venues around the world, including the World Press Photo Foundation, Contact Photography Festival Toronto, NPAC, Italian Institute of Culture Montreal, DDProject Trieste, Tokyo International Foto Awards, IGR Bingham Cup Amsterdam 2018, Paris Photo Prize.

WoPZines, an indie publishing house, is his latest ambitious endeavor.
