Silvia Montevecchi
Photographer

Silvia Montevecchi was born in Florence, Italy in 1994. She studied photography at LABA (Libera Accademia di Belle Arti) in Florence, where she graduated in 2018. During her artistic learning she developed an interest in the use of photography as a window connecting the interiority to the outside.

Her images are visual interpretation of an inner journey, an introspective investigation about identity, fears, hidden thoughts and feelings.

Her aim is to create imaginary worlds in which introspection is led by visual impulses, evoked sensations, symbolic elements.

Silvia Montevecchi’s work develops as a series of reflections upon themes that are central in everybody’s existential though, such as death, fears and our way to relate to the chaotic nature of life, themes that she feels the need to deepen in a personal way.

Most of her older works draw inspiration from literature; she is fascinated by how images and the written words can influence each others, by the way a mental image can be the starting point for a written text as well as words can stimulate visual imagination.

But in the last years she has been most of all connected to the theme of chaos, and this lead her to experiment also abstract painting and mixed techniques, such as painting on printed photographs or drilling and ripping up photographic prints to then back-light and photograph them again.

She’s currently working on the interdisciplinary union between painting and photography.

Her work has been exhibited in collective and solo shows around Italy and published in many photographic magazines such as Ombra Magazine and Musée Magazine, and in 2018 she published the photographic book Jisei no ku in collaboration with Seipersei publishing house.

Among her recognitions the Azimut Capital Management prize won during Paratissima Torino 2018, the Arte Laguna Prize, won in 2019 for the “photographic art and digital graphics” section, and she is one of the 150 talents selected for Fresh Eyes Photo by GUP Magazine in 2021.

Currently she both engages in photographic works on commission and in personal artistic research.
