Tutor Description

Nicol Vizioli began as a painter and gradually her fascination of still images developed in the form of a strong passion for photography. The insight of her work draws upon many different places, such as the natural and animal world, mythology, literature and finally painting: photography is therefore regarded as the convergence point, where all of them meet. Painting and photography are inseparable in her work, they influence each other, in a continuous, never-ending flow. After a degree in cinema she moved to London, where she graduated from MA Fashion Photography at LCF. Her work has been exhibited in several places and international art fairs such as Miami, Basel, Somerset House for the London World Photography Festival, the Zabludowicz Collection, The XV Biennale de la Mediterranée, Milan, Rome and many others.
