Salvatore Cavalli (Italy, 1982) is a documentary photographer. His work revolves around the quest for material remnants and customs of his country’s archaic roots, especially through an interest in folk traditions. Alongside these themes, he has also gained extensive experience in social issues by working on migration and civil rights. His photography often focuses on the documentation of civil resistance and on the dignity of men and women who choose not to bow down in front of the iniquities and arrogance of power, claiming their own rights and those of their fellows. He works as a freelancer for national and international agencies, with NGO’s, ICRC, UNICEF and Save the Children. His pictures have been featured in exhibitions in Italy and abroad, and published on blogs, national and international newspapers and magazines, such as Time.com, NBC News, CBS News, Chicago Tribune, Miami Herald, Stars and Stripes, The Independent, Die Welt, Journal Du Dimanche, The Malta Independent, Huffington post, l’Unità, Internazionale, La Repubblica, Il Venerdì di Repubblica, L’Espresso, Il Corriere della Sera, Il Sole 24 Ore, Il Messaggero.
