At the age of 13, Luisa Menazzi Moretti (Udine, 1964) left Italy to move with her family to Texas where she went to high school and college. In those years she attended photography courses, showing a preference for developing and printing black-and-white photographs. She came back to live in Europe and got her degree in Modern Foreign Languages and Literature; she worked in London and then moved back to Italy where she lived in Bologna, Rome, Venice and Naples. In recent years she had transformed her passion for photography into projects, exhibits and publishing. Among her exhibits: I Am, Palazzo Lanfranchi National Museum, Matera; Archeological Museum of Potenza; PAN, Naples (2018); Ten Years and Eighty-Seven Days, a work on the death penalty, shown first at the European Month of Photography in Berlin (EMOP 2016) and then at the Santa Maria della Scala Museum in Siena (2017); Somewhere, Villa Manin, Udine (2016); Tre Oci Tre Mostre, Tre Oci Foundation, Venice (2015); Sconfinamenti #3, Festival dei Due Mondi, Spoleto (2015); Words, Universal Forum of Culture, Naples (2015), Gallery Tina Modotti, Udine and Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Pordenone (2014); Nature’s Matters, Modern Art Museum, Genova (2014). Her books have been published by Giunti, Contrasto, Gente di Fotografia and Arte’m. Her three most recent projects, Ten Years and Eighty-Seven Days, I Am and My Home, (a work dedicated to the children of the Spanish Quarters in Naples, where the artist lives part of the year), have been awarded with four Honorable Mentions at the International Photography Awards of New York. Luisa Menazzi Moretti is presently working on new projects, among which a work entitled Far Fading West.
