Stefano De Luigi is a familiar contributor to many international magazines including Stern, Paris Match, Le Monde Magazine, Time, and The New Yorker, although he is probably best known for his long term projects, which include “Pornoland” (winner of the Marco Bastianelli Prize in 2005) and “Blanco,” visions of blindness, published by Trolley in 2010 and produced with support from OMS Vision 2020 and the 2007 W.E. Smith Fellowship. In 2006, De Luigi started a new project called “Cinema Mundi,” which focuses on the alternative cinematographic scene and was transformed into a short 7-minute film that was screened at the Locarno Film Festival in August 2007. De Luigi has won the World Press Photo three times in different categories (1998, 2007, 2009), the Moving Walls of Soros Foundation in 2009 and Days Japan International Photojournalism Award 2010.
