Luisa Zanzani


I’m an Italian photographer based in Cologne – Germany.
After studying design in Florence and Saarbrücken, I spent a few years working as motion designer and art director. 2010 I graduated in photography at the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld with a project on my homeland region, the Italian Adriatic coast.
My work focuses on the relation between men and landscape.
