  • About the Artist

Carlo Mari is a photographer of reportage and advertising. He has traveled the world above and below the seas, with his camera around the neck always to tell his story. Between the '80s and'90s he published services and covers on the most prestigious Italian and foreign sea magazines.

Afterwards and for a long time he documented the wildlife of East Africa and was a correspondent of "The Harvill Press" in London. From this collaboration two important volumes were produced: "The Great Migration" and "Pink Africa".

In Africa, he now lives several months a year in close contact with unspoiled nature and tribal peoples. Portraitist, for years he has been documenting the beauty - not only the exterior one - of many people at risk of extinction.

Carlo Mari has to his credit many photographic books published all over the world, some concerning the life of seabed, others of East Africa, between Kenya and Tanzania and others more the artistic nude and advertising glamour, as "Animal Man" published in Paris by "Edition de La Martinière" in 2000.  "My Africa", one of his most important creations, became part of 2004 best-seller list in Germany (F&T). 

With "Leonardo International" he realized in 2009 a book on Pope Benedict XVI on his visit to Montecassino Abbey.

The connoisseurs know him for his refined FineArt prints in very limited edition, present in many private collections all over the world. In the last years the call of the sea has been so strong to bring him back in search of ancient sensations.

Sea and Africa: these are the ingredients for which he is dedicating himself to tell the story of life, fishing techniques and traditions of fishermen in East Africa.

His images have been shown in personal and collective exhibitions at international level, such as at the Mondial Festival of the image submarine of Antibes, France; at the Frankfurt Book Fair; at the African House Forum gallery in Munich; at the Ruetz gallery in Munich and Ausburg, Germany; at the Matthias Kuper gallery, in Schwabisch in Germany; at the Italian Cultural Institute in Nairobi in Kenya; at the Mews Gallery in London; in New York, for "Artist for Africa”; at FOTOFEVER night 2019 in Arles and at FOTOFEVER 2019 in Paris,  at MIA Photo Fair 2013, 2014, 2019 in Milan, in Rome and in many other Italian cities. "Passage throught DAR” is the last photographic book by Carlo, SKIRA Editore 2019. Also “Secret Love” a big size coffeetable book, a b&w story about the sea, CMStudio 2020.
