Documentary Photographer

Pietro Bondi was born in Palermo in 1979, where he grew up and lived until the age of 23.

When he was a child, his father, a photography enthusiast, showed him the magic of black & white printing. Since then he was hooked.

After graduating from high school, he worked for a couple of years for a car rental company at Palermo International Airport,
then in 2003 he moved to Wales in order to improve his English and in search of a better future.

In 2007, he enrolled to the BA (Hons) Photojournalism course ( 4-year program ) at Swansea Metropolitan University (now called University of Wales Trinity Saint David). In 2011 he became father and in 2012 he gained the degree.

During his 10 years leaving in Wales, he actively took part in several projects such as the Arandora Star Memorial Fund in Wales, Street Football Wales, Cardboardworld, just to name a few, and collaborated with charity organisations such as The Wallich, YMCA and The Big Issue Cymru. He also dedicated himself to long-term projects like Tide Zero, where he documented the life of fishermen of Swansea Bay and Mario, the story of the Italian boxer Mario Maccarinelli.

In 2012 he moved to Salento, in Southern Italy, where he attended a course for digital image technician. He then took part at some work placements on sets as a still photographer and electrician with directors such as Mattia De Pascali and Gianni De Blasi.
At the same time he dedicated himself to the long-term project Fieno & Popcorn about the lifestyle of circus artists in one of the last remaining circuses with wild animals.

In 2014 moved to Amsterdam, where he worked as a waiter and occasionally practiced the art of Street Photography while going to work.
In 2018 he moved again, this time to the sunny Barcelona, where he currently lives with his wife and three children, and where he is currently work as freelance photographer and dedicating to a long-term project Lost Trolley where he is documenting the everyday life of migrants that are stuck without working permit here in Spain.
