Prospekt is an Italian agency of documentary photography and visual storytelling that represents a group of International authors.
Prospekt members and contributors live in Milan, Rome, Berlin, London, Paris, Moscow, New York, San Francisco, New Delhi and Tokio, and work all over the world.
Prospekt images, videos, multimedias and essays are directed to all media companies, from editorials to book publishers, from online/mobile media to public organisations and corporate clients.
Current projects include long term projects and photo essays, documentary films and book publishing, multimedia projects, exhibitions, and editorial assignments.
In recent years, prospekt authors received the major International awknoledgements both in photography and in video-making, from the World Press Photo to the Eugene Smith Award and the Guggenheim fellowship, from the Sundance Festival to the Idfa Festival in Amsterdam, and the works represented has been published all over and featured in International festivals, museum and galleries.
The mission of the agency is to curate and promote projects that have a documentary and humanistic vision, either when dealing of news, society, environment, politics, culture or when expression of a more personal and intimate narrative of the human conditions.
Prospekt aims to assist its authors in all areas of creation, engaging its staff in the production of exhibitions, multimedia and video as well as long-term documentary projects.
To do that, since its foundation the agency has naturally involved contributors from different fields of the media and cultural world, from journalism to music, from comics to video, from arts to literature and anthropology.
This open structure has turned into a sound networking skill to meet the different needs of projects, members and clients.
Following this perspective, Prospekt has recently created a new group of talented photographers and compelling projects, a “hub” of photographers and ideas, the main purpose being to find, develop and support new narratives, new languages, new ways to connect the world of pictures to other media, people, projects and arts.
