Nikola Lorenzin (1989) was born in Belgrade just before the dissolution of Jugoslavia, but he grew up in Italy.
After graduating in Energy Engineering and Renewable Energies, he turned his attention towards photography, completing courses in the schools LENS and BlankPaper in Madrid. He currently lives in Milan, where he co-founded the collective of directors Santabelva and where he works as a freelance photographer and film-maker, interested in merging documentary narratives with conceptual and open-ended intimate approaches. He is open to collaborations worldwide.
