Diego Mayon is an Italian photographer based in Milan.
He studied at the Master in Photography and Visual Design at NABA in collaboration with FORMA (Milano)
He is passionate about contemporary documentary photography and photo books.
In 2015 he published a free press tabloid with TOMO TOMO of his project Grey Grass.
Grey Grass is a project focused on the transformation of the countryside, which lies to the east of Milan, Italy.
Over the four years before Expo Milano 2015 around a thousand hectares of fertile agricultural land were swept away to build two new highways, involving many local farming and threatening the survival of the lombard agriculture.
As curator and picture editor, Raffaele Vertaldi stated: â€œDiego made a very personal survey of a complex and multifaceted reality seen with romantic eyes.
We cannot call it an analytical work. Diego himself confirmed he was not interested to document the downside. His position is clear, it's not a pure investigation.
It is a personal work, an intimate and heartfelt research on his own land, but still with some investigative characters. This approach allowed him to see things that other people wouldn't have seen and it is the beauty and the strength of his work.â€
