My name is Eleonora Sabet and I am a freelance photographer from Milan, Italy. I started taking pictures through self-portraits, which made realize that I could use my art and empathy as a medium to tell someone else’s story.
In 2018, I traveled to Africa where I lived for 6 months in Tanzania, working as a principal photographer and social media manager for Tulime NGO. In Tanzania, mainly in the Iringa region, Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar, I got the chance to develop a variety of personal projects, encompassing the multifaceted reality of the country.
During my career, I have gained experience in video-making and post-production both in the profit and non-profit sector. Recently, I directed and edited Tulime NGO’s annual pre-tax donation campaign aimed at raising money from the Italian 5x1000. All of my video-making includes directing, editing and colour correction.
My plan for the years coming is working in emergency settings as a field photographer and video maker. Working in Africa has opened my eyes on the wish I have to continue working in the non-profit sector and make reportage work because the most important thing to me, as photographer and human being, is documenting people’s stories.
