Massimo Berruti is a documentary photographer from Rome. He spent almost four years working in central Asia and mainly in Pakistan, analyzing its contemporary history and involvement in the War on Terror through its implications on the population. This extensive coverage became his first long-term project, lately named “The Dusty Path.” He approached photography for the first time in 2003 while still conducting his studies in biology. In 2004 he started a full-time freelance self-teaching experience followed by two friends photographers, who invited him to participate in a collective project on the Italian cultural and economic crisis, a work published in February 2006 by Trolley Books in a volume titled “Made in Italy.”
In October 2005, he joined the no longer existing Grazia Neri Agency, based in Milan (Italy), and has been represented by them for about three years.
In the summer of 2008, he became a full member of Agence VU (Paris).
