Giovanna Petrocchi is an italian photographer based in London. She graduated from the London College of Communication with a BA in Photography in 2015 and she recently completed her MA in Visual Arts at Camberwell College of Arts, London.

In 2017 she was selected as a winner of the Lens Culture Emerging Talent Award and she is currently showing her latest work at The Photographers’ Gallery ( 14 Jun – 06 Oct ) as part of TPG New Talent
mentoring programme.

By combining personal photographs with found imagery and hand-made collages with 3d printing processes, Giovanna creates imaginary landscapes inspired by surrealist paintings virtual realities and ancient cultures. Influenced by museum displays and catalogues, Giovanna populates these landscapes with her own collection of surreal artefacts. The received view of ancient objects is deliberately distorted. A recurrent feature of her work is the juxtaposition of futuristic and primordial scenarios and the combination of digital and traditional approaches.
