Chiara Felmini

Country: Italy 🇮🇹

Born in Turin, Italy, in 1965, I have been passionate about photography since the age of 8 when I received my first camera as a gift, a camera that I still cherish to this day. Photography has been a constant part of my life, allowing me to explore the world and its beauty through the lens.

Throughout my career, which spans over 30 years, animals have played a significant role both professionally and personally. Capturing their essence through photography came naturally to me. However, it was my love for travel that led me to discover a passion for documentary and reportage photography. I am driven to tell stories, to embark on an aesthetic and emotional quest. The constant pursuit of light, color, and the decisive moment, coupled with the meaningful interactions with the people I encounter, fuels my desire to understand and share the intricacies of human nature. Photography has become an essential part of my life.

I have found immense satisfaction in having my photographs published in renowned magazines such as National Geographic, Dodho Magazine, AAP, and The Photographer. Additionally, I have received recognition and awards in national and international competitions, including National Geographic, PX3, Mifa, IPA, ND, Monovision, and WWDPhC.

My work has been exhibited in various cities including Turin, Reggio Emilia, Tortona, and Piobesi Torinese. Notably, my photographs have been showcased as part of the esteemed Atlas of Humanity, which has been displayed in Milan, Paris, and most recently in New York. I have also had the privilege of presenting my work in themed evenings at Photographic and Cultural Circles.
