Photos don't lie. Or do they?

Ruben Salvadori

Ruben Salvadori is an Italian media professional and photojournalist known for his project ‘Photojournalism Behind the Scenes’, through which he challenged the dramatic aesthetics of conflict images and the expectation of objective truth by including the photographer in the frame. He has ignited a discussion about the ethics of the profession and the need for the audience to be an active viewer by acknowledging the inevitable subjectivity of the photographic medium. Ruben has used photography to fulfill his anthropological interest, working on visual studies across Asia, Europe, the Middle East and America. His work has been published and presented internationally on media outlets such as The Atlantic, CBC, Business Insider, Die Zeit, Stern, Internazionale, European Photography. He currently lives and works in New York City.
