Camilla Ferrari


Camilla Ferrari (1992) is an Italian visual storyteller based in Milan, Italy.

Her interest lies in the relationship between human beings and their surroundings, exploring this connection with a gentle gaze.
Part of her research is concerned with how social media have the power to enrich visual storytelling through the mix between short videos and photographs, still and moving images.
Perpetuating the sense of gentleness that arises from her photographs, she expresses her observations also through her Instagram stories, which are an active part of her practice.

Camilla was recently nominated by Artsy as one of the 20 Rising Female Photojournalists, she has been nominated for the Joop Swart Masterclass 2019 and selected as one of 2019 PDN’s 30: New and Emerging Photographers to Watch, for the Nikon-NOOR Academy Masterclass in Turin, Italy, and for the Eddie Adams Workshop XXXI.

I always have 7 rings on my fingers that I never take off. They were 9, but two broke. And whenever I can, I wear long necklaces.
AirPods, pepper spray and a power bank are always in my bag. Powerbank is a must for me, I have several but right now my favorite is by Anker.
I love tote bags, specifically the ones from Micamera Bookstore in Milan.
