Agnese’s photography concentrates upon the intersections between identity, culture, and physical space. Her work has received critical and mainstream praise and has been featured in publications and photography websites in Italy, Europe, and worldwide.
Agnese graduated from Libera Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence with a BA in Photography (2009) and from the University of Westminster with an MA in Photojournalism (2010). In 2015, Agnese’s work was selected for the Asia-Europe Foundation’s ‘On The Go’ exhibition; the Corigliano Calabro Photography Festival; and was shortlisted for the Marco Pesaresi Award at the SI FEST in Savignano sul Rubicone and the Portfolio Italia Award. Her work was shown at the 10b Photography gallery in Rome and, most recently, her multimedia projects were selected for multiple Slideluck events in Italy and abroad.
In 2014, Agnese was selected as one of the ten brightest emerging Italian photographers to attend FRESH!, a year-long programme that supported documentary projects on contemporary Italian issues. ‘Made in Italy’ was the award-winning result of this experience. This ongoing documentary work about the the Chinese community in Italy has been published in Italian magazines, ‘Its China’, ‘A’, ‘Terre di Mezzo’, ‘L’Espresso’, and ‘IoDonna’.
Agnese also undertakes commercial commissions and a portfolio of such work will soon be available on this website.
