Monia Marchionni

Country: Italy 🇮🇹

Monia Marchionni (Italy 1981) is a visual artist and fine art photographer, graduated in Academy of Arts - Bologna (IT) 2005, a second degree in Literature and Philosophy with a specialization in History of Contemporary Art (2008).
She is fascinated by photography for that "double glance" typical of the medium, the "already seen" become "never seen" with a different cut of the scene and with the imagination, where the boundary between reality and fiction becomes more and more confused. Photography allows her to show reality as she sees it: places swallowed by an evanescent atmosphere, metaphorical characters, every picture is poised between fiction and reality, like a dream.
