Monica taking pictures

Monica Ragazzini (Forli, Italy 1967) studied photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy
ever since she lives and works in Amsterdam. Ragazzini is known for her series of photographs
of flying clothes. Since then the artist has worked with clothing as attempt to portray
“the skin of our time”. By photographing her subjects on an iconic way she creates a strange
stillness. A frozen moment that is rather an indication of an era than a snapshot. In her work
it is not time itself that is represented but a reflection of it.

Her work has been published internationally in magazines such as Flash Art, Wallpaper,
Kid’s Wear, The British Journal of Photography, View on Colour. Her work was presented
at the ARCO Madrid 2009 and in the group exhibition ‘Against Nature’ at Luis Adelantado
Gallery in Valencia. In February 2012 she has presented her series Déjà Vu as second solo
show at Metis (Ron Lang Art), Amsterdam and she was one of the ten finalists artist in a TV
competition on Dutch television called “The New Rembrandt”.
