Bio

What makes my work an emotion, it is not always linked to an important publication. It’s not tied to the ephemeral economic aspect. There is stronger enrichments: the magnificent human aspect

Stefano Stranges

Fotografo e fotoreporter indipendente italiano, dopo una laurea in Comunicazione Interculturale, nel 2006 inizio a lavorare come fotografo nel campo della moda, corporate e reportage di viaggio, collaborando con agenzie del settore.

Nel 2012 mi specializzo con un Masterclass dell’Agenzia Magnum.
Da allora i miei lavori si focalizzano su tematiche sociali iniziando collaborazioni con ONG nazionali e internazionali.
Dal 2013 al lavoro di fotoreporter affianco quello didattico in scuole e centri di formazione. Nel 2017 allargo i miei interessi al tema dell’educazione all’immagine, attività che svolgo in alcuni istituti superiori e circoli torinesi insieme ai colleghi del progetto didattico CollettivoX, di cui sono co-fondatore.

Attualmente sono impegnato in un progetto a lungo termine sulla filiera del materiale tecnologico, partendo dalle aree minerarie di Coltan in Africa, dal quale è nata la mostra itinerante “The victims of our wealth” (Finalista al Sifest Premio Pesaresi 2016, Menzione d’onore International Photographer of the Year 2017 e silver medal al Tokyo International Photography Award TIFA).

I miei reportage sono stati pubblicati da Rolling Stone, Il Reportage, Il Manifesto, La Stampa, Jesus Magazine, Left Magazine, Lo Stato delle Cose, Voci Globali.

Dal 2018 ho inizato una collaborazione a lungo termine con l’ONG Terre des Hommes Italia (Progetto FRAGILE).


I’m n Italian independent photoreporter. In 2006, after a degree in Intercultural Communication, I started to work as photographer in Fashion/corporate and event/travel reportage.
I cooperate with various NGO’s in social photo-projects and with agencies and magazines in photo-documentary.
My works are published in various italian magazine like La Stampa, Jesus, Il Reportage, Rolling Stone, Left, Il Manifesto and web-magazine focused in photojournalism and essay/documentary photography.

In January 2012 I attended a “Masterclass” of the renowned agency MAGNUM.
Over the last years I was invited to conduct several meetings on my photography projects, including a seminar at Pailan School of International Studies, Calcutta, january 2013.
In 2016 I started a long term project about the Elettronic supply chain. The first part of the reportage was focused on the mineral extraction in Nord Kivu (DR Congo) and was presented in the exhibition “The victims of our wealth” (Finalist project at Sifest Premio Pesaresi 2016, Onorable Mention at International Photographer of the Year 2017 e silver medal at Tokyo International Photography Award TIFA).
In 2017 I co-founded the CollettivoX with other three photoreporters. It’s a collective focused in the teaching of photography.
In 2018 I started a long term partnership with Terre Des Hommes Italia (FRAGILE Project)
