Carlo Pisa was born in Italy. Currently he lives and works between Bologna and Moscow.
In 1982, he started studying photography and began work as David Lees' assistant on the staff of the photographers of the Time Life group. He also was part of international working teams and was involved in international workshops on photojournalism hosted by Alex Webb, Jeff Jacobson, Bob Sacha, and Jane Evelyn Atwood.
From 1984 to 2004 he worked as a professional photojournalist. All his editorial works are a sensitive attempt to tell stories about people and places making use of a language which enabled him to express the frailty of the images of the life we have before our very eyes.
