Silvio Rusmigo (b. 1988) is a freelance photographer, based in Cyprus, whose work engages topics that deal with natural and cultural heritage.
Nature conservation has been a particular focus of Silvio’s personal projects. Such projects include ‘Red Soil’, ‘This is your Cyprus’, ‘The Balkan Lynx’ and ‘Within mountains, there lies’, all of which refer to the preservation of natural elements, landscapes and wildlife as well as recounting the experiences of those working hard for this purpose. Silvio’s personal projects have received international distinctions; his longest-running project, ‘This is your Cyprus’, has been selected as a winning project in the PDN Perspectives Contest in 2017.
At the same time, Silvio’s commissioned and commercial work share the common theme of communicating the importance of exploring and appreciating aspects of our surroundings. Such work includes projects and campaigns for Cypriot and international organisations like Cobalt Air, Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, Cyprus Tourism Organisation, University of Cyprus, Antiquities Department, KEAN Soft Drinks and Unicars. His campaign for the later was awarded a Silver Award by the PX3 Paris Photography Prize (2018) and a Bronze Award by the Tokyo International Foto Awards (2017).
Silvio graduated from the London College of Communication - UAL with distinction, holding an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography (2016-2018).
