ALBA ZARI’s medium is photography but she is also a movie director and documentary film maker. Her experience as a traveler influences and is reflected in her photographic practice, which intends to explore social themes, for example her visual studies of mental health centres since the Italian Basaglia Law, and the widespread eating disorders in American society. She has also completed projects on scenes from daily life in urban landscapes. She regularly collaborates with fashion brands and newspapers. Her style is distinguished by the use of the material colour, very pictorial, and by her images featuring unresolved, melancholic environments. Zari has an introspective sensibility for photography. The Y – Research of Biological Father (2017) is born out of a journey in search of her origins through the father she never knew. *She was born in Bangkok in 1987, and lives and works between Italy and London.
