Photographer, artist, and visual activist for women’s rights.


An exponent of contemporary photography, her works are rooted in personal experience, which Simona Ghizzoni reformulates and interprets through photography and videos. Known for her award-winning autobiographical work, Odd Days, and for the series of self-portraits titled Aftermath-Rayuela, Simona has been working on projects that explore the individual’s relationship with the world of today for more than ten years, with a particular interest in women’s and environmental issues. Photography involves the desire to listen and share knowledge, a propensity for dialogue that sparked an instant and mutual affinity between Simona and Rhea.
