The lady of nature
When the light goes down and the colours become unreal, shaded with a magical halo. When the colours fade in indistinct borders. The detail vanishes, the spirit responds to the magic in the air. When the presences are imagined, guessed, they can be perceived without knowing them: they filter visions all around and the suggestion covers like a veil of a spell that falls on everything. Something dies in the heart, while something else comes back, the ancient and the eternal resurface: the spirit of the nature that is born again, every day at the end of the day, and lightly wanders around, with suspended steps. In the evening, in the wood.
Author: Rome, Italy (1982). Photographer and writer. Paola approached photography when she was a kid, learning to print in black and white with rudimentary darkroom set up in her parents’ house. She was born and grew up in Rome from a Sicilian family. The connection to Sicily has always been quite strong, so her origins played an important role in her formation. This influence is reflected also in her works, especially in the lights and Baroque poses. She graduated in Political Sciences with the highest score at Rome University, but she soon understood that it was not her path, so she enrolled the Photography Academy. It is in fact in this field that she can totally express herself and her artistic soul.
She published her works on several websites and both on Italian and international photography and art magazines: Fotografia Moderna, Artonweb, Bagzine, F-Stop Magazine, Shots Magazine, ArtAbout Magazine, Spazio Art, Racconto di Sicilia, Micro Arti Visive.
She collaborates with different portals and magazines, such as Latitudine X, Artisti del Mare, Il Pesce tra le Nuvole and she was added in the book "Essenza di un'isola", published by IO Donna.
She has participated with her works to many personal and collective exhibitions. She was added to the historical archive of the Folk Art and traditions museum of Rome.
