This is an unpublished project premiered today on C41 Magazine.

Giuseppe Valerio Scandiffio was born in Matera on May 12, 1986.

Attracted as a teenager to cameras as mechanical fetishes, in high school he decided to create a small dark room where he could develop his black and white rolls.

After his classical studies, he enrolled at the faculty of law in Rome, but after three years he will abandon his studies to attend the three-year photography course at IED Milan. Particularly interested, since high school, in the photography of social documentation as a political vehicle of ideas, over time, and after his studies he has expanded his photographic experiences in the commercial and fashion fields, carrying out his photography projects in parallel.

He works in Milan as a photographer and digital operator and works as a studio assistant at the IED Milan, in portrait and fashion courses. He has taught photography at the University of Parma and the University of Matera.

He was selected for two artist residencies: one with photographer Adam Ferguson and one with photographer Alex Webb of Magnum Photos.

About ‘Asymptomatic’ – words by Giuseppe Valerio Scandiffio:

“Asymptomatic” is a story about individual self-exploration which addresses an unexpected journey. Recent social and physical isolating events have put the human being in a sort of obligation to ask one’s self questions, questions that haven’t been chosen deliberately, but rather imposed upon. Like infiltrating water within creeks we didn’t know existed, this story tries to show the phases one might have encountered.
