Associate Member of the Royal Photographic Society and member of the Association of Photographers, of London Independent Photography, of Shutter Hub and of the Lift-Off Film Festival Global Network, Dayana S. Marconi is an italian artist based in Rome.
Dayana S. Marconi achieved a BA in Intercultural Studies applied to Mass Media at the University of Trieste in 2005. While working as PMO for a Communication Company, she attended a one-year Analogue and Digital Photography course in Milan and a Multimedia and Graphic/Web Design course in Turin.
She moved to London in 2012, where she achieved a TEFL/TESOL Master Certificate that allowed her to move to China the following year to teach English. From that moment she started travelling and working on photographic projects across Asia, Europe and USA, opening her mind and soul to different cultures and embracing diversity.
In 2018 she achieved a MA Photography with Distinction at Falmouth University, where she was working as Distant Learning Executive Officer to improve the online students’ experience at Falmouth Flexible while attending an online screenwriting course lead by Richard Walter, UCLA Head of Screenwriting, and released by Shore Scripts LA.
“In my work, I am interested in exploring the ways in which photography can be used as a tool for social and psychological research, investigating the inner world of the portrayed individuals and viewers, who will use their own personal experience to interpret my imagery. In the portraiture related to the project “I can hear you now”, I am particularly interested in the process of releasing those negative emotions commonly kept as a secret in our daily lives. As a sufferer of anxiety disorders, I often feel the urge to scream out in pain but this inner pressure is never expressed. Our lives are managed by social norms that stigmatise these behaviours and, through this representative action, my aim is to create a constructive dialogue around mental health issues, still considered taboo in our culture.
After the creation of the short documentary “[ɪˈmaː.ɡoː]”, selected as semi-finalist at “$2 Film Festival” in New York, for the “London Lift-Off Film Festival Online” and awarded at the Los Angeles “Global Music Award” for the categories “Soundtrack collection” and “Composition/Composer” with a Bronze Medal, I am now focusing my attention on moving image and Performance Art.”
