About Silvia Noferi

Since 2003 i work as an artist photographer. My journey in photography begins in adolescence and developed over the years through multiple experiences of study and research, until a work experience, such as printer and Assistant in a study of fine art reproduction. My settings are characterized by rarefield atmospheres that convey to a parallel dimension where forgotten objects unfold open stories of past experiences and passing of time. Themes of identity, dreams and memory are explored in my photography without leaving out the timeliness of our time. Some of my works have become part of the permanent collections such as the Macn, museum of contemporary and twentieth century art, Monsummano Terme, Italia, and foundations such as Fondo Malerba for photography. I exhibited in several exhibitions both in Italy and abroad and won awards as the Celeste Prize 2009, exhhibition prize ARTELAGUNA, the prize ITS eight talent support for Pitti Immagine, I had a special jury mention at the Talent prize of 2008 and received the silver GONFALONE of the Tuscany Region, as well as being a finalist in several other awards. I use mainly natural light and film based photography, although more recently i also operate with artificial lighting and digital post-production.


In 2003 I enrolled at the school of photography Fondazione Studio Marangoni graduating three years in 2006. In those years I started my artistic research focusing initially on self-portrait.
