About

Massimo Berruti (Italy, 1979) is a documentary photographer based in 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, latelynamed “The Dusty Path.” He approached photography for the very first time in 2003, while he was still conducting  his studies in biology. In 2004 he started a full-time free lance 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 AgenceVU (Paris).
