Pietro Lo Casto


Pietro Lo Casto (b. 1986 Italy) is an artist working with images and video. He studied photography at the Pathshala Institute Bangladesh and is currently pursuing an MFA in Visual Arts at Chiang Mai University, Northern Thailand. Pietro sees his artistic research as the possibility to participate in the visualisation of posthuman paths driven more and more by collective conceptual creativity. His latest work “To Search the Secret of the Forest” includes acts of denunciation of structural injustice towards indigenous knowledge and other non-humans, defined as animals, plants and land, in an attempt to understand and deepen the multi-level relationship between humans and nature. He was selected for several national and international exhibitions, among others, Singapore International Photography Festival, Format Festival, Images Gibellina and featured in the British Journal of Photography and GUP's FRESH EYES 2021. He was one of the three winners of the 15th edition of the Canon Young Photographers Award and a finalist of the Bird in Flight Prize and the New Writings for Environmental Photography Prize. Pietro currently lives and works in Chiang Mai and he’s a member of AMOR MUNDI Multispecies Ecological Worldmaking Lab, an intersectional research initiative exploring how human and more-than-human worldmaking are mutually entangled.
