Marialaura Borgognoni

Born in 1979 into a family of artists, I live and work in Italy. I’m graduated in architecture, but the eclectic character and a great passion for the arts allow me to train and work also as a graphic designer, light designer, dancer and choreographer. I’m approach photography starting with an analog camera.  

The space-time decontextualization and abstraction, the search for rhythm in the subjects represented are the fulcrum of my photographic work, which derives from a dynamic approach to space, in which reorganization and reinterpretation processes come into play. Photography allows me to show a dimension where the impression of reality can merge with a dream projection, connecting more with the emotional sphere than the rational or narrative one.
