Travel photographer / film-maker,
Luciano Bovina of Italy is considered to be one of the top documentary
photographers in the world. Luciano's work has been exhibited
throughout several countries as both still images and motion
pictures. After 20+ years of working as a documentary photographer,
Luciano's impressive portfolio contains thousands of still images
and more than 30 documentaries.
Luciano began his stellar career as a photographer in the
Italian Navy, where he received the foundation for his work.
Throughout the years following his work with the Navy, Luciano
worked to produce one of the most dramatic and compelling bodies
of documentary photography/films in the world.
Among Luciano's awards is one of the most prestigious awards
available to professional photographers worldwide - the Nikon
International Photo Contest. Luciano was awarded the ultimate
Grand Prize in this contest in 1996, with his image of an Ethiopian
tribesman and tribeswoman crossing a stream (this image is included

awarded to Luciano's photograph was chosen from a body of over
36,000 photos from photographers in 53 countries!
