MARGOT ERRANTE

Margot Errante is an Italian-born performance artist and photographer. She traveled throughout the

world and lived in China for 22 years, since the age of 19. She now spends most of her time between

Hong Kong, Milan and Lugano.

Her body of artistic works explores human nature and identity. She calls attention on the

psychological engagement between the photographer and the sitter, which often "leads to

unpredictable results." She developed a passion for photography from an early age, and began

shooting landscapes at 10 when she was given her first camera, a compact Olympus. Eclectic by

nature, Margot speaks five foreign languages fluently, including Chinese, and became a researcher in

cultural anthropology, applying her understanding of human behavior to her portraiture.

Professionally, Errante started out as a travel photographer in the late 1990s while studying Chinese

at Beijing Language and Culture University. But photography was not her only interest: in 2004 she

moved for a year to an indigenous village deep into the jungles of the Sino-Burmese border, where

she conducted ethnographic research on the Wa people. The photographic fruits of this study

culminated in a successful exhibition held in Como, Italy, in 2005, to raise funds for the village in

which she lived. That same year, Margot was selected as the photographer for a diplomatic mission

sponsored by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs – a three months' journey from Italy to Japan by

car, with a stopover in North Korea that won the team a Peace Award.

Her experience in the media spans wide: she worked as a freelance photojournalist and television

correspondent. She produced a short documentary on Canada's First Nations and during the 2008

Olympic Games she hosted a successful television program - Beijing Express - broadcast by Class

CNBC.

While witnessing the massive reconstruction of Chinese cities, she became interested in architecture

and urban development, and collaborated with many local architecture firms. In 2008 she

contributed to the publication "Beijing Architecture & Design", and started writing about the

anthropology of architecture for the Italian magazine TALE&A up until 2010. Margot taught foreign

languages in Chinese universities. In 2010 she wrote a Chinese language textbook for DeAgostini

Editore, then moved to Hong Kong where she opened her photographic studio. That same year she

co-curated the Hong Kong Pavillion at the 12th International Architecture Exhibition of Venice

Biennale.

Margot taught digital photography classes at Istituto Dante Alighieri and lectured at Insight School

of Interior Design, in Hong Kong. Her photographs have been featured on China National

Geography, the South China Morning Post, Home, PRC, Ming, Domus China, Abitare China, Hinge,

Mark, Capital, Perspective, Wallpaper, Loft Publications, and more.

SIMONA LATARTARA

Simona Latartara was born in Taranto in 1983.

Art enthusiast, she begins to give life to her artistic creativity by approaching photography. Starting

from a classic and realistic worldview, she comes to a totally irrational and dreamlike reality using

imagination as a conductor between shoot and picture. Through photography there is a constant

search of energy between human and nature, a balance sometimes highlighted by light as well as the

static movement of her images.

Simona defines her way of living photography as a "CANONE INVERSO", sometimes starting from

matter to get to the picture. Hence, the systematic use of analog cameras.

STEFAN MILEV

Stefan Milev was born in Bulgaria in 1981.

Impressionist. Expressionist. Surrealist.

Stefan Milev photographs sending out rays of sensual poetry! He gives his pictures a subtle aura of

mystery and stands with hiswork between photography and painting. Stefan Milev displays a highly

artistic photographic identity towards the relationship between the model and his very personal

technique of painting with light. As a result, Milev’s picturesque meaning of photographs uncover a

unique and multiplex sense for the Zeitgeist in photography.

Milev, first and foremost recognized as a pictorialist continues the tradition of Fine Art photographers

from the early 19th Century such as Alvin Langdon Coburn and George Seeley.

SOFIA USLENGHI

Sofia Uslenghi was born in 1985 in Reggio Calabria, Italy.

She has been into photography research for fifteen years, focusing primarely on self-portraits. The

representation of one's image is the result of a long and complex process which passes through a

phase where the photographer's eye is not immediately recognizable before getting to the complete

and declared self-representation.

The subject wants to be present and subtract itself from its own meaning at the same time. However,

for its basic referential property, it manages to build not only what it states but also what it denies.

The search for satisfaction under the impulse of the principle of pleasure is marked by a process of

disintegration, movement, overlapping, deformation, union of contraries, denial and objective reality.

In the trespassed order of the representation it is not the unconscious that makes itself visible, but

the dynamics of desire which want to make it transparent.
