Federica’s photography and personal projects both focus on people. Her fascination with humans– particularly those who find self-expression difficult in a world full of societal (and in some cases, personal) taboos – is rooted in her own unique and challenging experience as an Italian immigrant in a foreign country. Federica is interested in getting as close as possible to her subjects’ life. She applies a narrative layer to the visual story telling, portraying the struggles of her subjects, as they push the boundaries of societal restraints. By layering these two skills and pushing her own boundaries, she is able to extract and expose truth when cameras and reporting are not always welcome.
