Alessandro Cinque

Alessandro Cinque is a photojournalist currently based in Lima. His work delves into mining’s devastating impact on indigenous communities and their lands. Alessandro has especially been documenting environmental contamination and public health concerns among the communities of Campesinos living along Peru’s mining corridor. In 2017, during a working trip in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, he met a 53-year old woman who told him that she got cancer because the water in her village was highly contaminated. Since then, Alessandro has committed to photographing the effects of the pollution that permeates the crops, livestock, and homes of the people residing near mining sites. Alessandro’s attention to social and environmental issues affecting minorities has often driven his work. In 2017, he documented gold mining in Senegal and kolbars smuggling goods at the border between Iraq and Iran. In 2019, while studying at the ICP in New York, he portrayed Williamsburg’s Italo-American community and travelled to Arizona to photograph the abandoned uranium mines in the Navajo territories. Alessandro is a Leica Ambassador. His photos were published in The New York Times, the NYT Lens Blog, MarieClaire, Libèration, Internazionale, L’Espresso. In 2019, his work on Peru won POYi’s Issue Reporting Picture Story first place. In the same year, he was selected as “Finalist” at Eugene Smith Grantand Alexia Foundation Grant. In December 2019, Alessandro moved to Lima to become more acquainted with Peru’s culture and society. He began contributing to Reuters’ coverage of LATAM while expanding his project on the impact of Peru’s mining industry on Quechua populations.

    Before the pandemic broke out, I lived in Lima, where I worked freelance and collaborated with Reuters. I had just left Italy and everything I had there to pursue my passion; a hard but conscious choice. After a few months, due to work reasons, I found myself stuck in New York while the Corona Virus was spreading. These were difficult moments, I felt lost and at the mercy of events, without being able to return to what I had considered home for months. During those days the city became more and more deserted, and in the streets I remembered full of people a silence resounded that I had never heard in those places during the time I lived there. And yet, I was surprised to see that I didn’t feel the weight of walking through the empty streets. I felt myself understood, lulled by the confusion that enveloped the Big Apple in those days because, deep down, it was the same feeling that I felt inside of me. Once again photography was my anchor and the only certainty I had in that moment, the way I had to understand what was happening outside and inside me. These photos do not speak about a deserted New York, but about a state of mind; I took them thinking about what I felt and not what I was seeing.
