Mom too soon
An investigation of adolescent pregnancy in Ecuador
In my opinion art, and more specifically photography, is the most effective way to reach a wide and inhomogeneous audience.
I see art as a universal language that has the power to educate and break down prejudices. Art has survived through centuries and always had the ability to change one’s thoughts starting from the artist himself.
It may not create a “revolution,” but it is a slow and long process that I believe will lead to a change. (Max Pelagatti)
Max Pelagatti is a photographer and photography instructor born in Tokyo in 1988 to an Italian father and Japanese mother, both of whom were opera singers. He spent his childhood between Italy and Japan; as a teenager, his family settled in Italy, his father’s homeland.
By nature curious and reserved, the camera was his preferred means of expression from a very early age.
