Nikola Lorenzin (1989) was born in Belgrade just before the dissolution of Yugoslavia, but he grew up in Italy.
After graduating in Renewable Energy Engineering, he turned his attention towards photography, completing courses in LENS and BlankPaper in Madrid. His work as a photographer and filmmaker merges documentary narratives with conceptual and open-ended subjective approaches, with the intention of exploring the cracks of contemporary society from a philosophical standpoint and the linguistic potential, in terms of relations and meanings, that can be established between images.
He currently lives in Milan, where he co-founded the collective of directors Santabelva
