Bio

Nicoletta Cerasomma is a photographer and pop surrealist artist with a background in staged photography. After studying photography since 1997, she realized her love for storytelling so, in the latest years, she had evolved from fashion photographer to independent artist focused on production of nuanced photographic tableaux.

Her work is highly conceptual and complex: as surrealist artist, she incorporates archetypes and cultural iconography with satirical narratives inspired by the collective unconscious. Leaning into the visual language of pop surrealism, she stages narrative compositions that expose the underbelly of modern life.

Nicoletta is inspired by the dichotomy Beauty and Decay, themes that she loves to incorporate into her works in order to evoke contemplation and debate on human condition, through a vivid and provocative still imagery and a cinematic technique.

Her images come from personal place of exploration where she dreams to live a thousand lives in one.

She is most known for her series "Cryptic Venus", created in 2020, which depicts women placed in suggestive scenarios.

Nicoletta was awarded the Sony world photography organization, the Pollux Awards and many other grants in 2020. Her work was exhibited in Paris, Moscow, Budapest, Barcelona and continues to show in international galleries. She is currently working on new dyptich projects.
