Italian artist living in Beijing. As professional photographer, Marco’s work spans documentary photography (vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture) and assignments like portraits, editorials and movies.
Born in Padua, the ancient and magic world apart of Venice is his port. Only by deeply digging into history it is possible to read the present and the future of mankind.
After architecture and industrial design studies, Cimino worked few years in fashion and commercial photography. Spiritually a nomad and always in need for a more deep and intense photography, the first trip to China drove him to documentary photography and to his first exhibition about the vanishing ancient Chinese culture.
If avoiding human beings was his start point, nowadays, Cimino’s work focuses on genuine human emotions even in the absence of human beings.
Photos tell stories. Cimino makes of each photo a whole strongly standing alone world, a whole strongly standing alone story.
