On the Spot: Giulia Mei

Giulia Mei was born in Liguria (Italy). Her passion for photography was born suddenly, because of a very painful experience, she found that the only way to express and metabolize that tangle of feelings, absences and anxiety was photographing and especially photographing herself. Thus she realized a series of self-portraits that she would define psychoanalysis.

In her darkest and most difficult moments photography helps Giulia; shooting manages to capture her emotions, pulling them out and lighten her soul, in the true sense of the word. During a trip to Paris Giulia realized that even though she was surrounded by wonderful places and monuments, she instinctively tended to photograph people; rather than the wonderful Sacre Coeur of Montmartre, she photographed people who were admiring it. Personal and emotional universe is the aspect that really interests Giulia.
