Italian photographer Sofia Podestà was born in Rome in 1991 and holds a degree in Art History with a specialization in the work of Luigi Ghirri, Guido Guidi and Vittore Fossati. After graduating, Podestà began focusing on her passion for taking photographs, winning immediate confirmation of her talent with the awarding of the 2019 GIOVANI CREATIVI (Young Creatives) prize as one of the best twelve Italian creative talents under 30 in the field of photography. She subsequently took part in a group exhibition at Rome’s Palazzo Massimo.
Podestà’s current research regards the relationship between man and the landscape and their interaction. Through her travels, Podestà discovers remote and unique places which she enables her viewer to experience indirectly.
