After working as a photojournalist, in 2007 he joined COLORS magazine, as photo editor, and assigned more than 150 photographers in 60+ countries. In 2015, he moved to New York and worked as a freelance photo editor on the 2016 TIME 100 issue. He is now Programme Manager at QUAD, the organiser of FORMAT Photography Festival in Debry (UK). He has served as a portfolio reviewer and juror in several international photo festivals and photography awards and grants and he’s been nominated for picture editor of the year at the Lucie Awards 2011. As a curator, in 2015 he pulled together two group shows: the Fabrica exhibition at the Łodz Fotofestiwal and the Afterlife exhibition at the Athens Photo Festival. From 2018 he started working as a freelance photo editor for Lezioni di Fotografia, a new weekly supplement to the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, a project directed by Oliviero Toscani studio. He now lives and works mostly between Uk and Germany.
Mauro Bedoni is keen to see all photographers who are interested in discussing their ideas, and he is open to seeing work at any stage of project development. Most types of work are welcome for review, including documentary, photojournalism, archival, photo/cross artform installation, contemporary, and narrative photography, as well as film and performance. He is less interested in seeing commercial, advertising, nude, or stock photography, unless they fit into the above categories.
Mauro is particularly interested in meeting documentary photographers working with different genres and original approaches and styles of photography, preferably experimenting new ways of storytelling. Mauro Bedoni can review in Italian, English, Spanish and French.
