Creating images that have a calmness and occasionally a melancholia, Mattia Panunzio’s beautiful photography grapples with subject matter and stories focused on cultural identity and heritage.

Born in Rome, Italy, in 2019 Mattia embarked on a journey to Australia in search of landscapes and realities dramatically diverse from the ones he had encountered in his home country. He currently resides in Sydney, Australia where he pursues his passion for photography, documenting people and places diametrically opposite to life in the city.
