Igor Marchesan first approached photography as a kid, when he started to develop his
own films in an ordinary sink in his house. Influenced by his Romanian origins, he covered weddings and funerals around the countryside that reminds him of his infancy memories.
In 2012 embarked on an investigative itinerary in the Balcans and then started to work on his first major photographic project in Romania.
Marchesan’s aim is to tell the stories of the people he meets along his journey and who leave a mark in his life.
