Giacomo d’Orlando

Giacomo d’Orlando is an Italian documentary photographer focused on environmental and social issues. In 2015, he moved to Nepal and then Peru to enter the world of photojournalism, working alongside local NGOs focusing on social issues. His subsequent time in Australia and New Zealand inspired him to concentrate on the environment, particularly the possible future scenarios caused by climate change. His projects have appeared in the Washington Post, Der Spiegel, Paris Match, El Pais, Geo France, De Volkskrant, D – La Repubblica and Mare Magazine, among others. Today, his work looks at how the increasing pressures brought about by climate change are reshaping the planet and how present-day society is reacting to the new challenges that will characterize our future.
