Rocco Rorandelli

Rocco Rorandelli started working as a documentary photographer after his doctoral studies in Natural Sciences, which helped him develop a profound interest in global social and environmental issues. His images have appeared in campaigns by NGOs — including the World Health Organization, Oxfam, Save the Children, Doctors Without Borders — and are regularly published by international magazines such as Le Monde, GEO, Der Spiegel, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Paris Match, The Guardian, D Repubblica, L’Espresso, Internazionale, Io Donna, Vanity Fair, Sportweek, Monocle, IL, and others. In 2011 he won a grant from the Fund for Investigative Journalism for his long-term project on the tobacco industry, published as a book with the title Bitter Leaves (GOST Books, 2019).

Rocco is based in Rome. He is a founding member of the collective TerraProject.
