Serena Vittorini was born in L’Aquila where she still lives. After graduating in Psychology she decided to devote herself entirely to the study of photography, at ISFCI and IED Milan. She lives photography lives as a research, as a tool to tell in a personal way the places and faces of those who meet her path. At the center of her work always emerges the interest for the individual who is sometimes isolated and extrapolated from his social context to direct attention to its typical characteristics, other times submerged by the surrounding environment. In recent years she has been interested in the analysis of the processes of modification of places and the relationship between human presence and representation of urban space.
