Bio

Emilio Barillaro was born in 1980 in Gioiosa Jonica (Italy).

He lives and works in Roma (Italy) as Photographer.

He teaches Photography at "Centro Romano di Fotografia e Cinema".

He is creator and co-founder of "SPontanea" collective (www.spontanea.org)

He is member of the Photographic Museum of Humanity.

He uses photography to discover life and find his place in this world. The camera helps him to linger, to slow down this busy life, and shows him all those little things that his eyes are not able to see.

His work has been published on different national and international websites, magazines and books.

His pictures were exhibited – at different events – both in Europe and in America.
