Alessandro Toscano is an Italian photographer and videomaker.
During and after completing his degree in Communication Sciences at Rome’s La Sapienza University, he dedicated himself to the conception and production of documentary and creative photo and video projects, both as a personal expressive search and for commercial commissions.
At the same time, he dedicated himself to documentary photography and reportage, and in October 2009, he founded OnOff Picture Photo Agency, which worked with major Italian and international publications including The New York Times, Time, the Financial Times, Stern, Le Monde, Wired, and L’Espresso, and was active as both a director and photographer.
Alessandro complements his documentary and editorial activity with projects of narration and documentation that unite visual storytelling with educational and participatory projects on environmental and social issues.
