Margherita Loba Amadio
Photographer

Always passionate about visual art, I was introduced to photography professionally when sixteen (2009), being chosen as a post producer assistant for Alessandro Damato (UP-STUDIO, Milano), working for Armani, Corneliani, Natuzzi, Carpisa and more.

At 18, while graduating in classical studies, I started working as Toni Meneguzzo’s personal assistant and photo retoucher: interiors, portraits, fashion, still life, stop motion videos.

In 2013 I started working behind the lens on my own. I worked for Caudalie, Alfredo Salvatori – Erika Cavallini, Ioma, Anvolt, Vichy, La fille d’O, Warby Parker and others.

My projects have been published on Musée Magazine, Satiety Paper, Girl Gaze project, Schon Magazine, FrontSeat, Curated By Girls, Curieux, Placidamente and more.

My personal work investigates strength in vulnerability, transparency in shamelessness, wisdom in development. It’s the visual diary of a personal journey through preconception, boundary and taboo, daring to actually embody consistency, curiosity and love. If you love you need no ideology, reality is beauty.

    The Ukrainian Museum
    New York, USA
    The Ukrainian Museum is excited to present the exhibition Peter Hujar: Rialto, opening on 2 May 2024. Peter Hujar (1934-1987) exemplified the downtown New York arts scene. He was born to an immigrant family, and his Ukrainian grandmother raised him exclusively in the Ukrainian language until he was 5 years old. His difficult and unstable upbringing in a troubled household influenced his artistry and vision significantly as Hujar turned to a career in photography. (more…)
  • Atiéna R. Kilfa: Special Effect
    May 4 – Sep 8, 2024
    Den Frie
    Copenhagen, Denmark
    With Special Effect, Atiéna R. Kilfa presents a new body of works consisting of a short film and two large scale pencil drawings. In continuation of Kilfa’s investigation and restructuring of cinematic archetypes, Special Effect homes in on the nondescript figure of a man sitting at a desk. Shot in black and white, the film eerily evokes a timelessness of the figure by bringing it in resonance with pictorial genres reminiscent of various eras from German Expressionist cinema to the golden age of Hollywood film noir, fast forward to its 4K quality of today.

  • Gregory Crewdson: Retrospective
    May 29 – Sep 8, 2024
    Albertina
    Wien, Austria
    Gregory Crewdson (*1962, Brooklyn) is one of the world’s most renowned photographers. Since the mid-1980s, Crewdson has been using the backdrop of small American towns and film sets to create, like a director, technically brilliant and colourfully seductive photographs that focus on human isolation and the abysses of society. The enigmatic scenes self-reflexively raise questions about the boundary between fact and fiction but can also be related to socio-political developments. (more…)

    In 2011, Maria Sturm began to photograph the lives of young people from the Lumbee Tribe around Pembroke, Robeson County, North Carolina. Through the process of documenting their lives, Sturm began to question her own understanding of what it means to be Native American. Her new book You Don’t Look Native to Me combines photographs with interviews and texts to preconceptions and show Native identity not as fixed, but evolving and redefining itself with each generation.
