Andrea D’Auria is a photographer highly influence by his background in graphic design and punk culture. He was born in Rome in 1989 where he studied Visual Communication and Advertising and later, moved to Berlin, where he lives and works today. D’Auria attributes much of his art and inspiration to Berlin and its underground scene. The Italian photographer’s work is rich in subtle critiques and aims to emphasize unacknowledged beauty. D’Auria’s photography strives for an unmatched and unapologetic authenticity.
D’Auria has had several exhibitions world-wide, the most recent being a group exhibition at Pudderraum with the "Foto Klub Kollektive” Berlin. Currently, D’auria is working on his first book, or ‘The Raw and The Rare’ project, which is due to be published in 2017.
