Hi, I’m Flavia!

I’m a photographer who embraces both a documentary approach to my subjects, and experimental techniques on the medium. 

I was born in France, and grew up all around the world, but mostly in Italy and France. I met my husband in Paris and together we moved again halfway across the world, had two beautiful children, and finally settled down in Madison, Wisconsin – to be honest though, there’s always luggage half-packed somewhere in the house…

My subjects always feature some form of human presence, and that’s because I’m fascinated by people, faces, activities, how we live, how we interact, how we love. I chase emotions, letting go of perfection, and embracing the unpredictable.

I shoot exclusively on film, because the process, the techniques, and the very physical aspect of the medium fit my interests, and also because it produces photographs that feel timeless and that aren’t meant to simply live as digital files.

Besides my work as a photographer, I also organise experiences and community events aimed to help dive into film photography. 

If any of this sounds interesting to you, please be in touch! I’m open to travel, I’m open to portrait photography, I’m open to adventure, however this may present itself.
