    Fabio Germinario

Since the 1970s capsule hotels have met the needs of businessmen who need refreshment and rest before returning to work, in the great homeland of effectiveness. Quiet beehives scattered in the chaos of the metropolis, crossroads of solitudes and silences, like a long sigh in the superfluous hours of day and night. No shoes. No tattoos. No women. Two towels, a pair of boxers, a dressing gown. No need for interaction, no superfluous effort, only the time strictly necessary for a single portion of pre-packaged cuddles. Waiting for a new functional and solitary day.

Fabio Germinario is an independent photojournalist born in Rome in 1987. After finishing his studies in languages, he dedicates his life to travel where he discovers and deepens reportage photography, a journey that pushes his passion around the globe between nature and people; Throughout this period he developed a strong interest and empathy for the human being and his diversity, key to his current projects. In 2016 he attended a Master's degree that brought him closer to photojournalism. Currently in Italy engaged in work on social issues.
