Stefania Verganti is a self-taught photographer based in Varese, the lake area in the North of Italy. She has always had a passion for photography, even from a young age, but has only devoted herself to the medium in the last four years.
Stefania considers photography as an inner journey, an alchemy through which she expresses her visions as symbols arising from her own subconscious feelings and emotions. Influenced by humanistic studies, she draws inspiration from the past: art, literature, cinema and the photographic greats that she always admired.
Stefania’s photography is focused on the female portrait, her beauty and femininity as a mirror of an inner beauty. Her muses convey gentle femininity and a natural beauty and yet, at the same time, are voluptuous and wild – as if the images create a connection between the sacred and the profane, an expression of beauty and the harmony between body and soul as embodied in this series with model Frida.
