Giovanni Capriotti

Giovanni specializes in long-form in-depth documentary explorations that examine how time and inevitability of compromise shape individuals, communities, history, culture, and human condition. Through the integration of photography, moving images, audio, experiential prose, and personal testimonials, he strives to deepen his understanding of worldly affairs and the role of contemporary documentary practice. Giovanni is currently pursuing a MFA in Documentary Media at Ryerson University, Toronto, and continues to accept assignments and commissions. He is on the Advisory Board of the Loyalist College Photojournalism Program, plus runs photography workshops, lectures, and talks. 

Giovanni's work has been recognized by the World Press Photo Foundation, Pictures of the Year International, Dorothea Lange and Paul Taylor Prize, Lucie Foundation, Paris Photo Prize, News Photographers Association of Canada - and supported through grants from Italian institutions such as ISMEO and MIUR. 

His 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, ESOF 2020 Trieste.  AMORPRESS, an indie publishing house, is his latest ambitious endeavour.
