Simone Mestroni has developed visual storytelling skills along with his fieldwork research on ethnographic aspects of Kashmiri conflict. While completing his PhD in anthropology he has been working as video operator with Donatello Conti and Giulio Squarci, and as fixer for Fausto Podavini for his photographic works in India. In October 2017 his first documentary “After Prayers” Prayers” has been awarded with the Wenner Gren Foundation postdoctoral grant. Mestroni’s ethnographic book on Kashmir, titled “Lines of Control,” is going to be released by summer 2018 and will be used as textbook for academic courses in three Italian universities.
