As an oyster to the shell we are tied to our bodies Plato wrote, so the body of the woman is tied to an indelible collective imagination and in the same way I am tied to my body and theirs.

Bio: 

Always fascinated by the visual arts, Chiara has been approaching photography since 2009, when at the age of 17 she begins to use the darkroom set up in her school.
In 2012 she decided to move to Berlin to study at the Neue schule fuer Fotografie where she gets her diploma in 2016.
During those years in Berlin, her artistic research looks at the female body, its definition and the meaning attributed to it in the social and cultural field, research that today represents the fulcrum of De Maria’s aesthetics.
Specialized in analogue techniques, in the last 4 years she also approaches video and collage.
Returned to Italy, in 2018 she obtained a biennial diploma at the prestigious Master of High Education on the Contemporary Image of Fondazione Fotografia Modena.
In addition to being one of the creative forces behind The tuscan House of Photography, De Maria currently works at  the educational department of Fondazione Modena Arti Visive, as a freelance photographer and videomaker and as Video Professor at the Master of High Education on the Contemporary Image, FMAV.

Throughout my work portraits of mothers, grandmothers and young women are intrinsic, for it is their stories I wish to tell, beautifully.

This picture represent to me a very delicate moment in a woman life: the pre-adolescence. The way Paola is looking at the camera makes me think that she is growing in self-awarness while her shy, younger sister looking at the floor reminds me of the difficulty of accepting that self....
