My name is Mauro Santoro, I’m an Italian photographer and filmmaker.
After graduating in film and theater criticism I began working as a freelance filmmaker, making commercials, corporate, music and wedding videos.
In 2009 I attended a master class in Cinema and Social Commitment with the director Paolo Benvenuti, which gave me more perspective about why I do what I decided to do in my life.
In 2015 I started taking photography seriously, after an unexpected love affair with it.
Formally devoted to the potential poetry hidden inside everything, my artistic journey it’s about to get very interesting.
