    Luca Bracali

Deep in the remote Taiga of Mongolia, they are nomads, hunters and reindeer breeders: the few remaining Tsataan people cling to their ancient traditions, which is at risk of disappearing forever.

Luca Bracali has traveled to 142 countries, is author of 13 books and winner of 12 prizes in International photo contests. Since 2008 he is a member of Apecs (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists) for his contributions about environment published in the media. In 2009 he was the only reporter to reach the geographic North Pole on skis. In 2010 Bracali debuted in the world of fine-art photography and his pictures have been on show, as solo exhibitions, in 50 museums and galleries in Rome, Sofia, Kiev, Odessa, Copenaghen, Montreal and New York. He is also a TV director and filmmaker.
