About

Paola Ruvioli’s love for photography began immediately after receiving her first camera, a Polaroid SX-70 on her seventh birthday. Since then she has studied and made photographs around the world, enriching the content and narrative potential of her artistic vision. She holds a degree in Political Science from the University of Cagliari in Sardenia, Italy.

Ruvioli’s work focuses on the intimate  relationship between individuals, and their unique psychological perspectivein the worlds we inhabit, with particular sensitivity to human behavior. Her images investigate the myriad sensations and perceptions encountered in our daily surroundings, with the intention of reflecting back more acutely to viewers their emotionally resonant potential . By referencing specific moods viewers are inspired to revisit sensations and passages into parallel realities typical of the world of dreams and their interpretation, creating emotional pathways that attempt to reveal the secrets of who we are in our inner and outer worlds.
