BIO
Carlo Gianferro (b. 1970, Italy) is a freelance photographer based in Rome. He worked from 2004 to 2008 with the Romanian and Moldavian wealthy Roma communities. Two books were a result of this long term project: “Gypsy Architecture” by German Axel Menges Editions and “Gypsy Interiors” published by Italian Postcart Edizioni. In addition, Carlo has worked on personal projects in Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East. He’s now working on Italian issues exploring mental illness, exiled workers and other fragile communities. His photographs document people’s conditions and show them in an environment where the architectural setting is just as important as the human figures. Carlo has received several international awards, including 1st prize for his portrait stories from World Press Photo in 2009.  
In 2014 he founded ROAM photography.
