Visual artist and photographer Olivia Milani (b.1984) has been captivated by images and the power of visual language since she can remember. She studied photography at Central Saint Martins in London, graduating with a Postgraduate degree in Photography. Through her curious, inquisitive and lyrical looking, she creates subtle, open narratives and usually develops long term projects. Olivia has travelled extensively, her travels deeply influence her work.
As much as representing outer places, her images are about our inner landscapes and suggestive of inner states and ways of feeling. Olivia sees photography as a tool for outer and inner exploration and discovery. Her images are partly constructed and partly simply observed or gathered as they happen in the moment. Often situations and places encountered by chance which she then invests with symbolic associations.
With a multicultural background, she grew up in the Italian speaking region of Switzerland and sees herself as a global citizen. She lives and works in London, England. Her work has been exhibited internationally and she has collaborated with many gifted artists.
She approaches her work with serious playfulness and she likes to let its meaning unfold.
She also works on assignments as a freelance photographer, more can be seen at: www.solsticeimages.net
She welcomes creative collaborations and commissions and wishes to use her skills and talents in a meaningful way.
