Photos by Salvatore Mancini

Providence, R.I. – Salvatore Mancini and his cameras- have traveled to India, Cambodia, his native Italy and a host of locations in between. In black and white, he's captured ancient rock drawings, a man washing the feet of a giant Buddha statue, and a boy with a rat perched on his shoulder in India. It's a career that brought the Cranston-based photographer numerous recognitions, including Italy's prestigious Bolaffi award and a local Pell Award. Mancini's work's been exhibited at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, the Fogg Museum in Cambridge and the RISD museum of Art, among others.
