Melania Avanzato
Photographer

Melania was born in France of Italian parents. The uprooting would leave her childhood floating in an abstract nostalgia inherited of another history. After her studies in cinema and history, and later photography, she would not cease to lead her life of exploration, of time, of connections and suspended emotions.

Melania works with news outlets and various publishing houses with a predilection for portraits. Her personal projects are centered around memory.

She is a member of the collective Parallèle.
