ILARIA DI GIUSTILI - professional photographer for more than 30 years and independent curator. Born in Rome in 1966. He lives between Rome and Pizzoli (AQ) where he draws his energy.
I am a photographer, I started when I was a little girl and have never stopped. I love telling stories and people through my lens: whether it's a married couple, the clouds, a friend, the elderly people of my town or a square, in the end they are all portraits. I like to move around people and inside places on tiptoe like an explorer, empathetically searching for the story within the story. What interests me is the soul of the story, in the silence of the words the light and the lens are my tools. If I could say it in words I wouldn't need to photograph it, but I don't want and I can't be different than that.
Master of Applied Art, graduated from the Ist. Art of Rome in artistic photography. He attended the seminar "The Writing with the Light" held by Vittorio Storaro at the Accad. Inter. Arts and Sciences and the image of the eagle and the Faculty of Architecture.
