Daria Martinoni

"I use photography to deconstruct urban spaces and to play with our perception of reality. I use a multiple exposure approach to create a moment of confusion, but also to convey a sense of calmness in the chaos, and to transfer the scene into a transitional world between reality and dream."

Daria Martinoni is an amateur photographer working and living in Zurich, Switzerland. As a Geographer, she uses photography to playfully (de)construct the built urban environment we live in, in order to explore our perception of space (and reality). She experiments with long shutter speeds and several zoom settings in one exposure. With this approach, she aims at questioning our making of the world through experience and knowledge.

Her photography "Swissmill Tower" has been awarded an Honorable Mention in the 2018 International Photography Awards (@photoawards, @iphotoawards). She has been accepted to the photoSchweiz 19 (www.photo-schweiz.ch), which is the largest photography exhibition in Switzerland. Each year the retrospective provides a representative overview of the past year in Switzerland from a photographic perspective.
