The photographic volume contains the testimonies of a journey that began ten years ago, a journey for which I started moved by the desire to discover and plant flags on a map and which soon matured into an “inner journey”.

40 Seasons of Humanity – A LIFE IN BALANCE – Mauro De Bettio – Crowdbooks PublishingDuring this journey, which pushed me to different remote corners of the planet, I met and photographed people of distinct cultures, characters and dogmas, who opened a window on their stories, letting emotions, traumas, sufferings and a perpetual light of life and joy in the look.

Some of them are often defined on the margins, minorities that are easy to ignore or whose existence we simply do not know, minorities made up of millions of people. I allowed myself to reach and explore the fragile balance that is intertwined between people in the infinite beauty of diversity, through the face of a humanity cadenced in 40 seasons. That’s why I decided to entitle the book: 40 Seasons of Humanity“.

40 Seasons of Humanity – Mauro De Bettio – Crowdbooks PublishingPhotography goes beyond the image itself and represents my way of communicating tenacity and fragility, colors and shadows, the joy of a glance and its essence. The determination of the protagonists in the images I capture are an extraordinary example of how every challenge can be transformed into an opportunity, and I am the spokesperson and interpreter of a piece of this humanity.

Biography

Mauro De Bettio is an established documentary photographer who dedicates his life working on projects concerning social and human rights issues, illuminating difficult situations to bring beauty. De Bettio’s intimate perspective sees the essence of an individual and makes it emerge through each photograph. Every single of his work reveals the strength and resilience of humanity as a whole. Born and raised in a small village in the Italian Alps, Mauro felt within himself, from an early age, the desire to tell stories. He soon discovered that the camera was the right tool for him, the expression through which to communicate with the world; an instrument that, since then, began to accompany him on a long journey of discovery.

“Although difficult to express, I believe that photography represents my way of communicating; I try to capture the sense of what I breathe and touch, not only in appearance, but also and above all in essence, aiming to enclose the nuances and the details in a single frame. Photography is part of my personality and my work fully expresses my story and my soul “.
