Marco Di Lauro
Marco Di Lauro is a World Press award-winning photographer working for, among others, Newsweek, Time Magazine, New York Times Magazine and Der Spiegel. He has worked under an exclusive contract for Getty Images Reportage since 2002, covering the Middle Eastern conflict in the Gaza Strip and spent almost all of 2003 and 2004 in Iraq, documenting the American invasion and the plight of the Iraqi people. Along with his wartime coverage, Di Lauro also covers events such as the Palio of Siena horse race and the Battle of the Oranges that breaks out every year in the city of Ivrea in Italy, Easter processions in Sicily, the Easter procession in Seville, and the religious life in Italy and the Vatican City. In his stories, whether large or small, in Italy or abroad, he always attempts to capture the sacred side of life and its deeper meaning.
