Fabiola Menchelli’s work investigates essential ideas about photography through the language of abstraction. Using light as raw material, her work explores photography as a poetic space, using a wide variety of contemporary strategies and experimental techniques ranging from analog to digital practices. From phenomenology to astronomy, her work seeks to expand the meaning of observing, to expand our perception beyond the limits of our own body in the infinite hopeful attempt to understand our existence.
