Biography

My name is Silvia Mazzella, I'm 21 and I'm from Genoa,Italy.  I attended the Art School and once finished my education with  paints and easels I decided to take the plunge and follow my dream, with another kind of 'tripod'.
I moved to Milan, another city, another climate and another odour compared to my beloved town of sea and hills. I'm attending  IED in Milan and this is my senior year and in a  few months I'll get a basic degree in fine arts  and fashion photography.
When I was a child, my mother used to call me 'nuvolina' (little cloud) and when I painted  my disorderly drawings with crayons my father called me 'little artist' but only now  I understand its  true meaning.
I've always loved to imagine things that do not happen in real life. I've always loved drawing places that do not exist. I "met" photography five years ago and since then I have been trying to make the "invisible visible", to turn a thought into an image that I can review when I want without fearing that might disappear into thin air. Transforming something trivial in extraordinary, pushing to the limit our imagination is what  has always fascinated me: making a simple thing, such as a wall or a tree, a majestic surreal landscape.
The teachers always told me that I was too absent-minded and my friends thought I am a day-dreamer ,but what's wrong in trying to see things that you can't see?
