Serena Vittorini

Serena Vittorini


Serena Vittorini was born in L’Aquila where she lives. She has loved photography since she was a child but only after graduating in Psychology she decided to devote herself to the study of photography, at ISFCI (Institute of Photography and Integrated Communication).
In addition to her studies she started working as a freelance photographer focusing mostly on commissions related to portraiture and still life. Besides her professional career she also dedicates herself to the artistic career. After exploring some techniques such as light painting, she could produce personal projects which have been included in group and solo shows. Keen observer of everyday life, she lives photography as a tool for telling her thoughts in a personal way describing faces of people crossing her path. In her work individuals who are sometimes isolated from their social context emerge, guiding the attention to their typical features, sometimes overwhelmed by the grotesque surroundings.
