Silvia De Giorgi is an Italian photographer and artist, who lives and works between Oslo and Bolzano, Italy. She graduated from Camberwell College of Arts London in 2017 with an MA in Visual Arts and recently gained a master’s degree of Arts in Drawing from Wimbledon College of Arts, London. In her practice, she interrogates the varied relationships between people, objects, places and landscapes. Her work is concerned with notions of time and memory and is centered on the exploration of the natural surrounding seen as an ever-changing entity. De Giorgi’s pieces are based on her own experiences of the open environment and are frequently connected to familiar places and objects, as well as locations visited on walks and journeys. She was among the winners of the Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Awards 2020, the LensCulture Emerging Talent Awards 2019 (Juror’s Pick), and the Signature Art Prize 2019. She was recently selected as FRESH EYES Talent 2020.
