About Emanuela Meloni

I was born in Cagliari, Italy in 1987. I studied political science in Rome for two years, then chose to change path. I graduated in Philosophy in Trent in 2010. I started working on photography in 2008, taking part in many workshops in Italy. These experiences led me then to look for a more professionalizing path. I was admitted to the National School of Photography in Arles, France, (École Nationale Supérieure de la photographie) in 2012, where I graduated with honors in June 2015. For me, art is a unique access to the world, a threshold that mirrors the relationship between my inner being and what surrounds me. The perceptive and sensorial experience of reality can open our mind and our creativity to unattended and unknown places. In those places -both real and unreal- I try to find my place, in the attempt to translate in images the connection with the people and the landscapes I meet. Photography often goes hand in hand with other media, like sound and video, or with the complementary voices that create a junction among subjectivity, otherness, identities, territories and landscapes.
