Hi, I am Adele. Born and raised in Italy, I have been traveling, working and studying in different countries for ten years. With a degree in anthropology from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 2017 I got accepted to a Research Master in Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), Netherlands, but I soon realized academia was not my path. I believe the topics anthropology investigates are too important to stay confined within the university realm. I then decided to try to overcome this gap by combining anthropology and photography, one of my long-term passions, for I believe visuality embodies a stronger message than an intricate academic article. For my personal projects I focus on thesocial construction of bodies, mental illness, gender activism, human flows, permaculture and yoga. I also cover small events, family photos, portraiture and photo-reportage. My photographic approach is participatory and derives from my educational background in anthropology: I never dictate to the subjects how to pose but I always negotiate the composition and message behind it with them. I'm now based in Amman, Jordan.
