Carolina Sandretto is an Italian photographer with a background in both Not for profit Management and Photojournalism. Carolina explores themes such as passing of time, memory and abandonment. For her research, she works predominately with medium format analogue cameras and large format. Through traditional techniques, the photographic process becomes a mental creative process, a path whose purpose is the image intended as a story.

In 2011, she obtained a MA in Management of the No Profit at Bocconi University, Milan, and in 2013 she completed the program in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at ICP-International Center of Photography in New York City.
