Debora Barnaba is an artist and photographer, born in Milan in 1985.
After studying drawing and painting, she discovered photography, which became her main expression in 2006. Her background can be seen in the detailed, formal construction of her shots and in her effort to aestheticize an idea, “tracing” it in the space of a single click. Debora Barnaba's expression of her own interior toughts is characterised by a stark simplicity of style and, combined with the expressive power of her self-portraits, recalls the work of Francesca Woodman and the desire to transcend her subjectivity offering an absolute body, in which the viewer is identified.
She has worked with some of the leading names including Maurizio Montagna, Roger Weiss, Giovanni Gastel and Oliviero Toscani, with whom, in 2009, she collaborated on a project about Florence that was later published in a catalogue entitled “Santo Spirito”.
In 2010, one of the leading industry magazines, Il Fotografo, made its cover story about her.
In 2011, she produced her first book, “Visioni del vuoto: Varese” (Arterigere Edizioni, 2011), which included critical texts by Riccardo Crespi, Riccardo Manzotti and Sandro Iovine, and provided an original portrayal of the Garden City.
In 2012, she extended her exploration into the world of video and worked with the painter Silvio Pasotti on projects about the body.
She has taken part in several collective exhibitions, including “Il paesaggio contemporaneo” (Deodato Arte, Milan, 2012) and “Nonsolocorpisoli” (I Macelli, Florence, 2012). In 2013, she had her first personal exhibition “Debora Barnaba: Untitled show” at Theca Gallery in Lugano (Switzerland).
She also works as a fashion photographer and has her work published in magazines across the world, including L'Officiel, Cosmopolitan, OOB. Read Less
