Valeria Cherchi

Portrait by Federico Ciamei


Valeria Cherchi (b.1986) is an Italian photographer. She was born and raised in Sardinia, Italy.

Her practice focuses on projects regarding social and cultural issues. Her research is driven by the need of exploring topics such as time, memories and history connected to her personal experience. She is interested in true and tangible character-driven stories, often told by combining photography and text.

In 2018 Valeria is named in British Journal of Photography’s annual ‘Ones to Watch’.
