Luca Santini was born in Rome in 1992. He began to approach photography in 2014, enrolling in the three-year master in the Scuola Romana di Fotografia e Cinema in Rome. In 2017 he became study assistant of Paolo Pellegrin and collaborated in the publication of the book "Paolo Pellegrin - An Anthology". He immediately focused on long-term personal projects with a documentary approach, publishing in the most important Italian and international magazines, including Bloomberg Businessweek, National Geographic, Der Spiegel, Vanity Fair, L’Espresso, Internazionale and others.
His research is subsequently transformed into the construction of visual stories on the Italian territory, investigating the landscape in the broad sense of the term, with particular attention to the elements of the ordinary and to portraits. In July 2020 his first book "Blue" was released, a four-handed work with Matteo Natalucci enriched by the pen of Wu Ming 2. Since 2020 he has been represented by the Contrasto photo agency.
