Alberto Campi, a freelance photojournalist since 2007, favors “slow journalism”.

Italian by birth but migrant by vocation, he is based in Geneva (Switzerland), and he’s always ready to leave for a story to tell using the language of photography, especially for the Balkan region which he knows very well. He is very interested in migratory phenomena in the Balkan region.

He is member of the collective of independent journalists We Report, and also works for the monthly La Cité.
