Massimo Sestini

has shot photographs of Italian and international events for over 30 years, including images of the Moby Prince disaster and aerial photographs of the sites in which Paolo Borsellino and Giovanni Falcone were assassinated. He photographed Licio Gelli in Geneva being escorted to jail and, on 23 December 1984, he was the only photographer to access the carriage of the Rapido 904 wiped out by a bomb in the tunnel of San Benedetto Val di Sambro. He also immortalized scenes from Stefano Casiraghi’s funeral in 1990 and glimpses of Lady Diana’s bikini. For a long time he worked simultaneously as a photographer and agent, coordinating his staff.


Every day, people risk their lives on epic journeys across the Saharan desert and the Mediterranean Sea, in search of safety and a better life: often only to be confronted with the buttresses of Fortress Europe. Eurozine presents highlights from Stories without borders, the exhibition series first displayed in Conversano, Italy from 11 September to 5 October 2014.
