Rossella Pezzino de Geronimo

Rossella Pezzino de Geronimo is a sicilian photographer. Her technique generates deeply evocative pictures: at first she focuses on women who live and work in poor countries, with the aim of representing their physical and emotional condition. Later, she progressively abandons the portrait to devote herself to the landscape.

A choice, however, that does not respond to a criterion of mimesis, but to an analysis that moves from the particular to the general. Inspired by the great tradition of environmental photography, that is rooted in the production of Ansel Adams and Franco Fontana, she transfigures her interiority in front of the vastness of natural elements. Her multifaceted production leads her progressively to increase her medium, including video art. Following the propensity for renewal, Pezzino de Geronimo is currently focusing on a new project that combines art and holography, “using the hologram as an element of amplification of reality, transformed into conceptual and abstract terms”.
