Giuseppe Oliverio (b. Bologna, 1985) is an Italian entrepreneur, curator and filmmaker. In 2012 he founded phmuseum.com, a curated online platform dedicated to contemporary photography based in London. Nowadays the project features the work of 5,000 selected photographers and connects them with photo editors and curators, who can discover and publish their visual stories directly from the platform.
PHmuseum is also known for its Grants aimed at financing and promoting photographers and their projects. Only in 2018 it offered £25,000 in cash prizes, plus other relevant opportunities such as a solo show at Cortona On The Move and a nomination for the World Press Photo’s Joop Swart Masterclass. Former jury members include Roger Ballen, Sarah Leen (National Geographic), Martin Parr (Magnum Photos), Kathy Ryan (New York Times) and Alessia Glaviano (Vogue Italia).
Giuseppe worked as a portfolio reviewer for Magnum Photos at Visa Pour L’Image in Perpignan and at other photography festivals like Cortona On The Move and Photo Vogue Festival. He was in the jury of international awards like Gomma Grant, The Fence, Reminders Photography Stronghold and Viewbook Grant. He gave talks and joined conferences at international festivals like Photoville in New York, Paraty Em Foco in Brazil, and Ojo de Pez Meeting in Barcelona. He also wrote a series of articles on Latin American photography for TIME magazine. His first documentary A Conscious Dream was selected to 12 film festivals across Europe, USA and Latin America and awarded best documentary short at 2016 Manchester International Film Festival.
