Lorenzo Catena is a photographer and architect based in Rome, Italy. The Roman photographer captures moments of everyday life, working towards complex and evocative compositions, assembled with harmony through vibrant colours and play of natural and artificial light. His photographic approach connects situations that are apparently unrelated to each other in a new personal and emotional vision, creating unexpected narratives.
In 2018 he was among the honorable mentions of the Sony World Photography Exhibition and his work was exhibited at Somerset House. In 2018 he won first prize at the London Street Photography Festival (London category). In 2019 Lorenzo was among the winners of the “Summer heat” competition curated by Magnum Photos. In 2021 his work was selected by Martin Parr among the winning photos of the Street Photography category for The Independent Photographer Platform. With the “Comitiva” series he is a finalist in the Lens Culture 2021 Street Photography Awards. Lorenzo is co-author, together with Valeria Tofanelli, of the “Mareterno” photographic project, a book published by Eyeshot
