Amritsar is the capital of the state of Punjab in Northwest India. It is popular among Sikhs and tourists for the spectacular Harmandir Sahib, the Sikh most important shrine known as the "Golden Temple".
As spectacular, but far less known, is the Guru-Ka-Langar. A huge kitchen service sited within the temple area. A facility structured to cook and offer tens of thousands of free, hot meals daily.
Following the Sikh’s principles of equality, sharing, community everyone, regardless of religion, caste, colour, age, gender, nationality or social status is welcomed to sit and dine in one of the Langar large halls.
Born in Rome, Italy in 1970, Valerio Berdini is now resident in Cambridge, UK. Photographing from a very young age, he has developed a personal language that merges a traditional aesthetic, influenced by the masters of photojournalism, with an incessant attention to the evolution of contemporary society. His photographic projects bring his cameras around the world where a transformation is in place. Valerio always seeks for eye contact. Either with singles, small groups or huge masses, hearing stories from people is the driving force to put together his own stories. As a live music photographer he is recognized within the International live music scene with an archive of hundreds of bands shot and has been published on numerous music related publications. Valerio work has been published in national and international papers and magazines, including Condé Nast Traveler (US), Travel Photography, L’Actualité, Grazia, L'Espresso, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Times, The Independent
