Portrait by Federico Ciamei

Valeria Cherchi is a photographer based in Milan and Sardinia.

After studying Industrial Design and Visual Communication at the Sapienza University of Rome, she achieved her MA in Fashion Photography at UAL. In 2016 she is one of the selected photographers for the masterclass with Simon Norfolk at the ISSP in Latvia.

Her practice focuses on long term 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 real and tangible stories to approach and tell through the detailed complexity of the characters, often by combining photography and text.
