Giovanni Cocco (Sulmona, 1973) is an image artist, a poliedric photographer. His own style and his various concepts, as a result of his continuous research and inspiration, pass through different technical means of photography, that become in his hands powerful communication channels of his way to view. He always had a great variety of themes to capture, faced with an edge always different; starting with “Monia”, a poetic series about his disabled sister, become a book in 2016 and so on with “Burladies”, in which he shows, as a pioneer, the emerging women Burlesque world in Italy, even became a book in 2017. Moreover, on an assignment for the Italian magazine L’Espresso with the journalist Fabrizio Gatti, he created ‘Moving Walls’, a story about the condition of migrants in the Europe borders. After many years in the greatest International and national magazines/ newspapers (L’Espresso, La Repubblica, L’Internazionale, Newsweek, Mare, Le Monde, National Geographic), during which he also joined VII International Agency (2010 – 2012) he focused himself and his work on a different perspective of social issues, an introspective input towards anthropological topics. From 2013, he analyzes the phenomenon of displacement, that strikes inhabitants of some European historical cities which are emptying and depopulating of its citizens as a consequence of the capitalism. This approach is now evolving into observation of the Beauty of these same sites, of people, of architecture, that is an evanescent and fleeting value of our reality and that he’s photographically translating in a deep conceptual shapes. His projects have brought him numerous awards and grant and have been presented as installations and or exhibitions in festivals, galleries, fair and museum worldwide, including Art Basel Scope Miami, ZonaMaco foto, Mexico City, MART – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Trento and Rovereto and MACRO, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome.
