Who is she

Self portrait Italian self-taught photographer, since very young she was carrying a camera to fix her memories.

In 1997 she established in Barcelona and she started studying black & white printing and developing techniques for photos and photomontage in a darkroom environment. She immediately felt in love with that magic world that marked her direction.

Over time and through her personal researches and experiences, she has discovered her own guiding lines through the world of two-dimensional reality, photography.
For her, the purpose of photography is to express a thought that is impulsed by a feeling; photography as a possibility to reflect, to search, to dig, trying to discover something about herself and what’s around her, photography as an interior research tool.

Inspired by natural history and mythology, she loves to spend her time into unspoiled landscapes. From the view of the natural world as a place alive and enchanted she comes back with images that narrate in poetic form her journey made of imaginative and mysterious stories.

In 2009 she started a darkroom project with some friends at Taller Milans, a creative platform for artists; in this space she has been working 6 years on her personal projects and research, experimenting with the historical photographic process of gum bichromate, cyanotype, VanDyke, carbon transfer, wet plate collodion, salt and albumen print.

In 2012 in Taller Milans a collective, “Las Chicas de Talbot”, was consolidated, focusing its research on the wet plate collodion, a photographic technique of the mid-nineteenth century realized in glass plate.

In 2016 she started working in a project called “Itinerant Photography” that rescues the “fotógrafo minutero” profession who at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th took portraits in the streets in just few minutes with a wooden box camera.
