Stefano Marchionini

Born in Verbania (Italy) in 1985, Stefano Marchionini lives in Arles, France. In 2014 he obtained a Master’s degree with honors at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, after a Bachelor’s degree in painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice in 2008. His work has been featured in gallery exhibitions and festivals in Paris, Marseille, Lyon, Venise, Belfast, Los Angeles, New York and has been published in magazines such as Dazed & Confused, Waterfall Magazine, Der Greif, A5 Magazine, Archivo Zine, Hello Mr, Neon Magazine, Fantastic Man, Out Magazine.


The images of natural and manufactured objects, observed and taken out of context, as well as those of contemplative landscapes and mysterious portraits intend to convey the passing of time and a sense of ennui.
A dialogue is established between moments and places that aren’t otherwise connected with each other, thus opening interpretation to new meanings.
The genesis of this photographic series coincides with certain personal events, such as moving to the South of France, after having lived in Paris for four years, and coping with a decision that wasn’t entirely mine.
However, while real life takes its own course there is a place where creation is free to explore what is happening without self-judgement and, therefore, taking pictures in these new surroundings have become a way to express part of my subconscious.
