Arianna Sanesi is an Italian photographer based "between Paris, Italy, and the forest".
From her artistic statement:
« My artistic approach is about looking and the exploration of meaning. I do not stop at the surface of things by deciding to take the time to dig: to dig in the stories, the mystery, or simply in what we consider acquired. I meet the ghosts (mine and others’) and I try to evoke the invisible.
I use every possible source for inspiration and expression: I work mainly with the help of hints and traces, in search of what has disappeared, what cannot be seen, what cannot be shown and from there I start to build a story. [...] I try to deal with what is missing and make it visible. »
In 2014 she publishes "Dispersal" (Rumore Nero), a book / object, a wild and probably vain quest for the wolf, this mythical and invisible creature. A priject Arianna indicates is « about absence, longing and freedom. »
In 2021, she publishes with writers Lydie Bodiou and Frédéric Chauvaud the book "Les crimes passionnels n'existent pas" (d'une rive à l'autre). For this book (in French only) discussing violence against women, she contributes images from her project "I would like you to see me" about femicide in Italy.
