Diego Fedele is an Italian freelance photojournalist currently based in Melbourne, Australia. After graduating from a Scientific-Technological Institute, he attended a documentary photography course at the "WSP Photography" in Rome, where his photographic journey began. In 2022, Diego was selected for the Eddie Adams Workshop XXXV edition in New York. His most recent and ongoing project approaches issues of the Ukraine-Russia war from a humanistic perspective and attempts to show those intimate and hidden moments that remind us of individuals' dignity when facing war and hardship.
Diego is also a stringer to the Australian Associated Press and Getty Images, covering news and politics. His work has been featured in national and international newspapers and magazines.

Diego completed the RedR Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) in February 2022. He is also a member of the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ).

Diego Fedele pays his respect to the Traditional Owners of the land where he currently lives, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation to their ancestors and elders past, present, and emerging.
