—  About Giovanna Aresu

Born in 1974 in Cagliari, Italy.

Graduated from the photography course at Istituto Europeo di Design Cagliari in 1995. Fascinated by the photographic work of Paolo Roversi, Giovanna went to Pairs to meet him and in 1996 she moved to Paris where she gained experience in fashion photography. Between 1997 and 1999 she went on working as a freelance assistant to various photographers in both Paris and New York, until she started to work as personal assistant for the French photographer Christophe Kutner. Thanks to these experiences, in 2001, Giovanna started her solo career as a fashion photographer with Elle magazine, for which she did several shoots and cover pictures. Following this, her work started to be published by Marie Claire, Flair, Tank, Crash.

Her subjects vary from portraits, fashion and performing arts.

As well as commercial pictures, Giovanna's work widens to projects of personal research which she started to exhibit in 2003.

Giovanna lives and works between France and Italy.
