Hadriel Torres born in Italy in 1991, artist, freelance photographer and entrepreneur, based in Australia, UK and Italy.
I have been traveling the world for the last decade working on different creative projects, discovering places and cultures with the mission of promoting social awareness through Photography .
“Beautiful Things Don't Ask for Attention”
"I am a witness of this generation"
In my life time many big, dramatic and impactful changes are reshaping the world we live in. From my point of view, this century will be a critical moment and time for humanity to be present and to be part of things that are about to happen. My mission is to capture all these unique moments through my lenses of the world changing before us ,walking over the steps of great explorers passing through ancient routes. Discovering new places, cultures and people but also exposing what the world should be more aware of such as the poverty, aftermaths and global warming. To me, to be a photojournalist/ explorer and to also focus on environmental photography is to capture impactful images, good and bad, to tell the story, to expose and to also raise awareness.
