Italian photographer Stefania Paparelli captures her images in a very feminine and cinematographic way. She manages to print on them a subtile vintage flair with a light that takes the viewer on a journey made of soft-colored dreams.
Born in Rome, after graduating from high school and a long experience traveling and working through out Europe, first in the UK and afterwards in France, she decided to make a radical change and moved to Sardinia. Today, the mother of two lives a dream that many do not dare to persue: she lives with her family in a house on the sea.
Gradually, she was able to convince advertisers and magazines that the versatile Sardinia offers the perfect backdrop for many photo productions. “I live and work in the never-ending summer,” says Paparelli. And commuting between Sardinia and Paris, she works worldwide for magazines such as Crash, Elle (France), Elle (Italy), Glamour (France), Glamour (Italy), Elle Australia,Harper’s Bazaar (Russia), Jalouse, La Repubblica delle Donne, Le Figaro (Japan), Le Nouvelle Observateur, L’Officiel and The Sunday Times.
Stefania has also participated in major Art Events. At the age of thirty, in 2002, during the week of photography in Paris, she made her debut with her first exhibition “Intimo” edited by Flavio Nervegna. In 2005 she took part in the important milanese collective exhibition “ Lo sguardo italiano. Fotografie italiane di moda dal 1951 a oggi.” edited by Francesco Bonami, Giusi Ferré, Maria Luisa Frisa, Mario Lupano, Claudio Marra ed Anna Mattirolo at la Rotonda della Besana. In 2006 she took part in the collective “9×100: Nove Fotografi per Cento Fotografie” organized by Maria Evangelisti for the gallery Santa Cecilia during the fifth edition of “Fotografia”.
