Marco Tagliafico, 1985
Lives and works in Alessandria, Italy.
He studied Oriental Languages at the University of Torino. During ten years of working career, he studied as a self-taught photographer. Selected in 2017 for “How do you want to be governed?” award by Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio Modena. In 2018 he graduated from Master di alta formazione sull'immagine contemporanea by Fondazione Fotografia Modena with Filippo Maggia.
Selected in 2019 for the group exhibition "Da Guarene all'Etna" by Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. Selected in 2019 amongst the young artists to follow in contemporary Italian photography at the SIFest, Savignano sul Rubicone. In 2019 is a finalist of Fondazione Francesco Fabbri Award.
Some of his works are part of the collection of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena. Starting from 2018 he teaches analog photography at Spazi Fotografici in Sarzana.
My works explore the interaction between the human being and the surrounding environment, using photography as a sort of ever-changing experiment, searching for something elusive in the gap between reality and its representation.
Combining pictorial processes with printmaking, and video installations I focus on the vulnerability and the ambiguity of the images questioning the mechanisms of reproduction and transmission of vision created by the photographic medium.
