Rocco Rorandelli (Italy, 1973) started working as a documentary photographer after his studies in Zoology, which helped him develop a profound interest in global social and environmental issues. His images have been utilized in awareness campaigns by intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations such as MSF, Oxfam, Save the Children, WHO, and he regularly publishes on Le Monde Magazine, GEO, Der Spiegel, Newsweek Japan, The Wall Street Journal, D di Repubblica, L’Espresso, Internazionale, Io Donna, among the others. In 2011 he was awarded a grant by the Fund for Investigative Journalism for his long-term project on the tobacco industry, which he published as a book in 2019 (Bitter Leaves, Gost Books).
Rocco is based in Rome. He is one of the founding members of the collective TerraProject.
