Roberta LO SCHIAVO

Roberta Lo Schiavo was born in Reggio Calabria in 1991. She graduated in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts. Besides painting, she focuses on the study of photography, choosing film as medium of expression.

Her images are exclusively analog and personally printed in silver salts traditional process. Her current research deals with the issue of identity. Through a harmonious agreement between the person, their body and the objects around it, Roberta Lo Schiavo tends to hide the identity of the person photographed.

Her intent is not to deny the identity, but to stimulate the imagination and curiosity of the viewer, inducing them to discover the uniqueness that distinguishes every human being.

To maintain the balance of this enigma, her look aligns with the classic portrait, without giving up subtle ironies.

Roberta is part of the group of photographers called “Equipe Argentique”, related to the magazine “Argentique”. Together with Equipe photographers, her work has been exhibited on several occasions from 2013.

Between 2014 and 2015 her project was selected by British agency “Millennium Images”.
