Alessandro Michele, Gucci's creative director is among the pictures of the year in The New Yorker. Here few outtakes from my shooting in Rome last summer:
It's 25 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and I'm spending three weeks traveling across Tajikistan to explore the imprint left on the poorest of the former Soviet bloc countries. Here, I meet some of the hundreds of thousands of Tajiks who are believed to be Russian guest workers and who, because of sanctions in Russia and the downfall of the ruble, are returning to their native country.
After four years I go back to New York to teach at the PWNY. A week long intensive seminar.
"Davide Monteleone comes back to New York with PWNY after the amazing workshop done with us back in 2012. From June 19 to June 25 2016, Davide will lead his new class in the exploration of the multiplicity of narratives that the city of New York offers, in order to build, day after day, for each student, a personal and original photo story. In this workshop Davide will also discuss the possibility in contemporary documentary photographic practice and approaches, taking a deeper look at the long-term project practice in photography. Starting from his personal experience, Davide will give an understanding of different forms of narratives and different ways of structuring work as well as strategy to efficiently produce the project. Particular attention will be give to how ideas are born, the fundamental basis for the beginning of every project in photography."

My work on the Russian-Chinese border appear on The New Yorker:
Oltre le Mura di Roma ha preso vita attraverso il concorso fotografico aperto a tutti per raccontare le periferie romane tramite le storie, spesso difficili, di chi le vive ogni giorno. La Giuria ha avuto un compito difficile nel selezionare le idee vincitrici, vista la ricchezza delle idee presentate e la bravura di tutti i partecipanti.

Avvicina le persone a ciò che accade, incuriosisce. Mostra un mondo lontano dai centri di potere, narra storie silenziose che scorrono distanti e nascoste, sconosciute all’obiettivo dei media che ogni giorno ci inondano di immagini.
Davide Monteleone è un artista, un narratore, un fotografo, che utilizza la fotocamera come mezzo espressivo per raccontare storie, per documentare il sociale.
