Maria Chirco, born in Erice (Italy 1983), has been working with Photography for several years. She studied at the ADBK in Nuremberg and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Palermo where she graduated with honors in 2006. The German experience was a vital point in the progression for her artistic journey. Her works are mainly focused on an introspective research, using photography to give life to surreal and dreamlike images, tracing autobiographical textures, exploring feelings through the different contexts of existence. Her photos are mainly created with the use of analogue cameras and darkroom development. Maria Chirco is currently living and working on the Island of Malta. Her work has appeared in leading independent magazines around the world and been exhibited internationally in Germany, Italy, Malta, Turkey and USA.
