One of the pope's official photographers, Rodolfo Felici, carries on a tradition of papal photography first started in the late 19th century by his great-great-great grandfather Giuseppe Felici. Rodolfo, a qualified architect with a postgraduate education in Architecture, Sacred Arts, and Liturgy, started to work in Vatican in 1999 accompanying his father to audiences with Pope John Paul II, helping him to change the rolls of film. Today, Studio Felici is still a family-run business, and Rodolfo works with his father, brother, cousin and uncle, taking photographs of ceremonies performed by Pope Francis and of the Pope going about his daily life.
