Bea De Giacomo

Varese, 1982, lives and works in Milan

After graduating in 2008 from the European Institute of Design in Milan, she began working as freelance photographer, specialising first in still-life photography. Over recent years she has focused more on fashion, portraiture and publishing projects. Her work is known on an international level and her collaborations include magazines and brands such as the T Magazine of The New York Times, M Le Monde, Wallpaper*, Vogue Italia,  Missoni and Gucci.

In 2016 she was chosen by Mousse to put her name to the Miart 2016 advertising campaign. Both her commercial and her personal work are characterised by a clean-cut style, centring around the search for harmony between form and composition, with the aim of conferring naturalness and simplicity even to the most constructed of scenarios, through the calculation and control of imperfection.

Simplicity also lies at the heart of her personal work, which has always been of a vernacular grounding and is developed around everyday life and the intimate sphere; she investigates family places, relations and connections, in a domestic and often rural context. Among her main group shows, we might mention Sulla nuova fotografia italiana at Viasaterna (Milano 2016), Facing-the-world at The Community (Paris 2016), Jump at Art-O-Rama (Marseilles, 2014), Soup of Flies at the Pomo Gallery (Milan, 2014).
