Biography

Marco Gentili
26 years, Macerata – Italy

When I need to make myself go in search of open landscapes or the darkest forest, swamp thicker and more impenetrable to the eyes of people. I enter in a forest as a sacred place, where it resides the power and quintessence of Nature. And as the Earth needs fertilizer to be fertile, so man needs for his health, wide open spaces around them. The survival of a city does not depend on the righteousness of the people who live there, but by woods and swamps that surround it. With my passion for Nature, I would like to show that a healthy relationship with the environment can and must necessarily exist. In this sense, the photography must not only document the beauty of nature, but it must be a reason for hope in the future and a means to protect it.
