Born in 1981, Roberto Ruberti, is an italian freelance photojournalist based in Rome.
Roberto graduated in Economics at the TorVergata University. His studies have contributed to further developed his sensibility and understanding of society and human being conditions across the globe.
The camera and its lenses become just the tool to portrait reality and real life thus telling a true story without any filter. Roberto believes that a perfect shot is the result of the right balance between one’s head and his heart.
He loves to travel on his own because he believes that’s the only way one can fully immerse himself into the reality that is being explored.
He mainly focused on cultural diversity, attracted by eldery people, and he believes that looking closely into the eyes of an older person allows him to enter that person’s routine and life, better understanding his environment.
From 2013 Roberto works with Marcopolo, a well known italian publication wich focused on travel; for this title he has photographed a variety of destination and landscapes including the Patagonian gliaciers, Angkor wat and Bagan temples, the Sahara and Wadi rum desert, the Moroccan Rif, the Petra ruins, Philippines, Argentina, Uruguay and Southern Spain. In addition he has worked on commercial projects, such as Sunstripes, always respecting a natural character of shapes during the photo-editing phases. Roberto’s curiosity for different ways of living has taken him to new and unfamiliar territories, some far away as the Manila’s Dumpsites, where he explored the conditions of children who live in those areas, as the Fes Tannery, or a wild life of Jordanian beduins. More recently, Roberto has travelled to Hong Kong, where he found inspiration in its night atmosphere, then to Cambogia and Tanzania.
Roberto has suitcase always ready and a heart always alert because life is short and the world full of things to discover, there is no more time for ties and desks…
