Return: ...On Photography Conversations


Stephanie Gengotti is a photographer of Italian/French nationality based in Rome. She has a degree in English and French Translation, a graduate diploma in photojournalism issued by the Scuola Romana di Fotografia, where she also attended a Master class in fashion and portrait photography.

"The need to establish an empathic and direct relationship often leads her to live in the same house and in the same identical daily routine as the main characters in her stories. A photograph is only the very last act, the catharsis, in a long and slow knowledge path."

She works mainly with reportage photography and portrait. Her work has been awarded and exhibited in numerous shows in Italy and abroad. Important editorial assignments and publications have included work for Internazionale, GEO Magazine, Le Monde Magazine, Stern, DER Spiegel, National Geographic, The New York Times, The Sunday Times Magazine, Sekai, The Guardian, Le Monde, 6 Mois, L’Espesso, Yo Dona, China Newsweek, El Mundo, Vanity Fair, IL, Il Reportage etc.
