Chantal Pinzi (b.1996, Como) studied at the University of Applied Sciences Europe. She is an Italian photographer, at the moment based in Berlin.
During her university career , she devote herself to photojournalism and documentary photography.
By using an artistic and experimental representation, her photographic works denounce, incriminate and give a voice to those who are never heard enough.
In the last years she has been in close contact with the brutal stories of migrants working on the project “The running man” (Awared in the Maghreb Photography Awards 2019.)
She uses photography as a medium to eliminate the distances, to get close to situation that she is interested in, and understand things from a privileged point of view.
Her interests in art allows her to investigate different visual strategies, from street art to sculpture and scanography, an element present in her latest work “Sigo Siendo”.
