Profile

Mattia Passarini is an award winning Italian Photographer based in Beijing, China.

“Diversity of cultures is the differences that exist between factors around the world. There are traditions and cultures that have survived for thousand of years and now, in just one generation everything can disappear.

I feel lucky to be one of the people that can still see and experience these diversity. The diversity that leads me to travel to the most neglected Asiatic countryside areas and capture people’s traditions and culture before these disappear.

In recent years I have focused my research on their varieties, locations, habits and especially on their visible distinguishing features, which they express through body tattoo and body modifications.”
