Matilde Minauro is a photographer based in Florence, Italy.
Introduced to photography through the work and influence of her grandfather, she owned her first camera at age 8.
Her studies in architecture influence her photographic style significantly, and this is evident in her use of lines and light as expressive languages.
Matilde uses the lens not only to frame the image, but to give it a soul - a profound element in her approach that allows her to translate everything into a poetic composition.
The atmosphere of her work is notably dreamlike, melancholic and quiet with consistently diluted and rarefied tones to define an intimate and profound space.
Floral elements, strictly chosen in soft and neutral tones in order to communicate the purity and fragility of being, are a constant in her photographic compositions. As is white, which prevails dominantly as both colour and search for simplicity, elegance and harmony.
Her portfolio is a secret corner of interiority, a collection of quiet poems that tell a story of almost impalpable sensations that words fail to express... A story that only light can delicately paint in every detail.
With a strong belief that every story is worth telling and that everyone has their own way to tell it, Matilde has understood that the best way to share her story is through photography.
For her, it is an amazing "mission" and "job" and she considers herself really lucky to be doing something that she loves.
In terms of working with clients and brands, she loves to share their story and philosophy with her worldwide audience and always tries to somehow mix her own story with theirs.
