Allegra Martin

ALLEGRA MARTIN places the portrait and the transformation of contemporary landscapes at the centre of her work, developing the idea that the identity of a place coincides with the perception that one receives of it. She has re-elaborated the lessons of documentary photography and photojournalism with a personal style, experimenting with new modes of representation in a process of deconstructing the real. She uses medium format cameras and film, always carrying with her a small compact automatic camera and expired rolls of film or disposable cameras, in order to obtain photos where there is space for error. Among her photo series are Double bind (2005), A Sud di Nessun Nord (2014), Cartoline dalla Brianza (2013). Since 2013 she has been an editor at “Exposed”. *She was born in 1980 in Vittorio Veneto, she lives and works in Milan.
