Annalisa Falcone is a Rome-based photographer. Her work focuses on reportage and portrait photography, as a means of investigating and exploring reality in its most intimate and personal aspects, often hidden from the public sphere. Revealing these aspects requires a deep connection with the subject being photographed. Each photographed reality involves complete involvement and total immersion, the ultimate goal being to show reality with the same power and intensity experienced through the lens.
In 2010, after obtaining a degree in Industrial Design, she moved to London where she studied Photography at Barking and Dagenham College. During these years, she completed an internship as a photo editor for the weekly Italian magazine ‘Internazionale’ and worked on two new projects: Exhibitionism and Everard, both exhibited in London and Rome. Since she started, she has preferred analog photography over digital. What she particularly loves is the materiality it expresses: the weight of the camera, the strong sound of the shutter button, the film development. Besides, the limited number of shots and the inability to see what has just been photographed lead to a completely different approach: photography becomes a more reflective and thoughtful process.
In 2013, she returned to Rome and co-founded the Mole Collective, where she is involved in the conception and creation of motion graphics videos. This experience influences her approach to the photographic medium, blending it with other media.
In 2016, she exhibited and further developed the Everard project in Rome, combining photography, collage, and video to create an immersive and all-encompassing experience for the viewer.
In 2017, she realized the project Private Conversations. This work, combining photography and sound, was exhibited in Rome.
In 2018, she moved to Paris, where she began working as a studio assistant for the renowned Studio Rouchon. Here, she was involved in organizing and managing the studio during the production of photographic and videographic services. During these years, she travelled extensively and continued to experiment with analogue photography and its various formats.
In 2021, she returned to Rome and started collaborating with Arise From Eyes studio, working in the field of public event photography, weddings, and corporate events, as well as in post-production, video editing, and motion graphics. In 2021 and 2022, she worked as the official photographer for the association ‘Le Contemporanee’ and various events such as “Con le donne afghane, contro ogni violenza nel mondo” (With Afghan Women, Against Violence Worldwide) held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in Rome, “Obiettivo 5. Parità di genere” (Objective 5. Gender Equality) held at La Sapienza University of Rome, and “La Forza delle Donne” (The Strength of Women), held in Spazio Europa, European Union Representation in Italy.
