Giorgia Tobiolo Giorgia is an Italian documentary photographer and educator, based in London. Raising internal questions stimulates Giorgia to examine the external environment. In this two-way relationship, she is keen to reveal the humanity, diversity, and vulnerability of labelled or stereotyped subjects, often objects of prejudice. Ultimately with her practice, she aims to break down the indifference towards certain topics and give a voice to people that need recognition, support, or inclusion. Besides her MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the University of Westminster, she has completed an Internship with Magnum Photos. Giorgia has, and continues to, collaborate with schools, festivals, charities, associations, private clients, magazines and institutions such as UAL, The British Academy of Photography, Urban Photo Fest, Photography Oxford Festival, the Calthorpe Project, Caritas Foundation, Migrants Resource Centre, the Prison of Pescara, Reuters Institute, CNN, AlJazeera, Source Magazine and more.
