Marco Cortesi, born in 1981 in Lugano (Switzerland). The passion for photography has been present since childhood, probably thanks to his father.

During the last years he has attended various workshops and masterclasses by Magnum and VII photographers and at ICP (New York).
He has made ​​his first solo exhibition in 2006 “Dark Urban”, in Bellinzona (Switzerland) at the gallery “Incontri di fotografia” by Alfonso Zirpoli.

He wants to keep photography as a passion, so he’s mainly interested in doing personal projects. He’s currently director of the photo festival LuganoPhotoDays.
