About

Best known for his Black and White reportage work, Italian born Dario Mitidieri began his photographic career in 1987 for The Sunday Telegraph and, since its launch, for The Independent where its revolutionary high quality use of Black and White photography was unprecedented for a newspaper and provided Mitidieri with a wonderful opportunity to showcase his work.
In May 1989, Dario travelled to China to document the peaceful demonstration of students in Tiananmen Square who were demanding democratic reforms, little knowing that a few days later he would photograph one of the most brutal army repressions in modern history. For his work he was awarded British Press Photographer of the Year, and was recognized worldwide as one of the top emerging photojournalists.
In 1994 his book CHILDREN OF BOMBAY was published in six languages, the result of a year long project about the lives of street children in Bombay. Described in French Photo Magazine as one of the ten most important photographic books of the decade, Children of Bombay has given a voice to children who occupy the very bottom rung of India’s social ladder.
In the years that followed Dario photographed some of the most significant events in recent times, including the Kobe Earthquake in Japan, Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna’s last race, the conflict in Northern Ireland, the Iraq War, the Tsunami in Indonesia and was able to work on other long term projects such as Children in Wars, Charismatic Evangelism across the world, Hedonism in Ibiza and most recently, Teenage Pregnancy in the UK.
Through his regular collaboration with many NGOs, Dario continues to communicate his ideas and vision through the medium of documentary photography, and humanitarian issues remain at the core of his work.
Dario lives in London with his wife, Petra, and has four children.

Fixer in Haiti

Hi. I will be travelling to Haiti next week. I will be staying mostly in Port au Prince but I intend to travel also to the North. I need a fixer / assistant during my stay. Can you recommend anyone? English speaking is not essential as I speak French. Any other suggestions will also be greatly appreciated. I never been to Haiti before. Thanks. Dario
