Cristina Fontana

Cristina Fontana is a photographer from Verona, born in 1974, active since 2000 in a research project in the field of macro fine art photography. A graduate in psychology, with a thesis on the processes of visual perception applied to photographic composition, she focuses her investigation on the concept of 'surprise of meaning'. She investigates the relationship between the perceived image and the mental association that emerges from it as a result of different levels of gaze. His photographs arise from everyday elements chosen with a criterion of 'interesting randomness' that refer to other, metaphorical and imaginative realities. Petals, leaves, fragments of dried flowers, stones are photographed at up to five times their actual size. Transfigured, they take on other meanings linked to the thoughts of the viewer.
