|About the Artist:
Lorenzo Martelli was born in 1986 and graduated from the Brera Art Institute of Milan, Italy. In 2007 he became acquainted with photographer Ernesto Bazan while attending his workshops in both Italy and Brasil. These initial meetings lead to a friendship and later collaboration: the creation and founding of independent publishing company, Bazan Photos Publishing. In the meantime, Lorenzo began visiting MiCamera Gallery and Bookstore in Milan. He attended several workshops with photographers such as Mark Steinmetz and Joakim Eskildsen, which helped him to pursue his own projects while affirming his interest in the publication of others'. In 2010, after several years of research and preparation, he presents his first project, Charlie.
