Paolo Verzone

Several time awarded photo reporter at Agence VU'

Agence VU' describes Paolo Verzone as an unclassified photographer which is something he likes.

Paolo Verzone has a background in journalism a field where he continues to work. He has undertaken large scale projects that take an in-depth look into today’s world. The most remarkable includes his survey of seaside bathers along the Italian, Lithuanian, French and Finnish coasts. The project spanned many years.

His intimate and strict portraits leave room for laughter while representing characters who become a funny but not always joyful reflection of our society. This “leisure society” he frames is neither in place or voided of its own caricature.
