Massimo Berruti (1979) studied Biology at La Sapienza University in Rome until 2005, when he left university to delve deeper into Photography. That same year, he joined the now defunct Grazia Neri Agency. Since that time, Berruti’s client roster has included many of the most important Italian and international magazines and newspapers. In 2009, Berruti became a member of the French Agency VU, based in Paris. His reports and the long-term project ‘The Dusty Path’ have been received numerous highly prestigious international accolades. Berruti has been the recipient of several awards, including two WORLD PRESS PHOTO prizes, the Joop Swart Masterclass, two POYi prizes, the Visa d’Or Arthus Bertrand, The Carmignac Gestion Grant for Photo-journalism and the W. Eugene Smith Fellowship. His works have been widely exhibited in Europe at festivals such as Perpignan, Arles, Paris PHOTO, Noorderlicht, Fotoleggendo, TOPS CHINA and in the USA at the VII Gallery in New York City.
