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 intimate approaches. 
He currently lives in Milan, where he co-founded the collective of directors Santabelva
