Elisa Imperi
Photographer

I was born in Umbria. I sometimes take refuge in the small rays of light that love photography.

I approach photography as an autodidact, both digital and analog, studying and reading books on the floor of libraries and taking photographs of the streets of my adopted city, Perugia.

For several years I started working with girls for this series of shots. They are almost all places that have a very personal meaning for me, and I discovered that they were also very personal for the girls who are portrayed in them. The atmosphere is that of my region, where nature takes meaning and where there are wonderful places that make you feel like a tiny person in the midst of a beautiful and great natural scenery.

I photograph to let something out that I have inside, a thought, a dream, an emotion, a cry. Photography is what always helps me. Whether in difficult times or in most peaceful ones.

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)
