Street photography by Matilde Damele google-site-verification: google0f4d935367ee47ef.html


I moved to New York in 1999 after a degree in English literature from the University of Bologna, with the desire to become a photographer. The fast pace of the city and its mix of cultures was an inexhaustible source of inspiration and I got easily drawn to photograph it daily. I followed a documentary photography workshop at the International Center of Photography and I had the opportunity to meet photographers who both inspired and encouraged me to continue taking photographs.

While taking photos on the street, I also developed a series of boxing photographs taken at local boxing matches and at Gleason's Gym and in 2005 I self published a book on blurb titled Soul Boxing

I participated at several group shows in the city and one solo show at the Empire State Building.

Between 2015 and 2020 I lived in London where I earned a master degree in photography at Central Saint Martins University and I had my work exhibited at Photo London.

Through my photographs I express a vision of reality where each photogram is partly a reflection of my thoughts and feelings, while it is also witness of a time and a place.
