Graduated in International Relations, Paolo Martino lived for long time in the Middle East, where he met everyday’s dreams and disappointments of refugees. After collaborating with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees he developed an interest in the specific issue of Afghan refugees. He is 27 years old.
His experience as a blogger starts during the 2006 conflict between Israel and Hezbollah. He documents his journeys in the region through photoessays and videos. In 2007 he published on Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso a photo essay from Kosovo, during a bicycle trip.
The “Mussa Khan” project started after sharing with Afghan and Iranian muhajirin the sidewalk of the Rome Ostiense station. And from having heard and shared the stories of Asif, Mortazavi, Reza and Abbas.
Paolo currently lives and works in Beirut.
