Piero Castellano

I am an independent journalist and photojournalist.
I specialize in heritage, street photography, new media activism, civil rights and struggle for them. I look for human stories on wider political, social, or economic backgrounds.
I work as a freelance photographer since 2002. After I settled in Turkey in 2011 I began cooperating with Italian daily “La Repubblica” and international media and agencies. I have covered the 2013-2014 mass protests in Turkey. 
I work on cultural heritage, local traditions (typical food, ethnic gastronomy, craftsmanship) and sea related topics (boat building and restoration, yacht racing, seafaring traditions).
I pay special attention to social and economic issues in depressed areas, including those regarding displaced people, urban refugees, neglected suburbs and craftsmen in disappearing professions, always with an eye on local history.
I am quite active on Twitter.
I write in Italian and English, have photo and video capability.
