My name is Alex Grioni. I was born in Milan, Italy, and since an early age I was passionate about animals and photography.
I moved to Hong Kong in 1999 and started a career in conservation working for an NGO which is located in one of the most beautiful forestry areas of the territory. At the same time I started diving and exploring the underwater wonders that we rarely have the chance to see.
Photography gives me the change of capturing the subtle and microscopic beauties of the natural world and also the greater beauty of seascapes, landscapes and world cultures. Animal species and environments disappear every day because of human disregard and greed, so do cultures, in the name of progress and civilisation. As Jane Goodall says "Here we are, the most clever species ever to have lived. So how is it we can destroy the only planet we have?".
These few web pages of my photos, hopefully will bring about some awareness of how fascinating our planet is.
