VISUAL ARTIST & PHOTOGRAPHER

I’m based in Florence, Italy, and Tenerife, Canary islands.
Co-founder of French Fries studio  

i’m Lucilla Bellini, italian born photographer, collages artist and Art-director.

Graduated in Visual Anthropology and Cinema in Florence, i’m specialized in fashion photography, focusing my interest on the female portrait, poetic, emotional and strongly cinematic.

I travelled through Europe and Asia and lived in Italy, France and Spain, acquiring an eclectic and multicultural vision of the world that is reflected in my way of telling stories through any medium of photography, analog, instant or digital.

My work is characterized by the strong imaginative component  and the sophisticated use of color. I doesn’t just describe things in a plain way but with altered colors and doubled images, I drive reality to be open to different interpretations.

The body of my work always takes the form of hypotheses, scattered at various levels of being and it overcomes the tension between what “has been” and that what “is”, crossing into a new dimension that of what “could be”.

The admiration for Art drives my artworks to be declined in different forms that surpass the photographic medium for going towards the creation of hand-made mixed-media collages where, the analysis of the female figure, portrayed by my or cutted from fashion magazines, outlines the conceptual basis of my artistic work on the fragility and transience of beauty.

Currently I live between Florence, Italy and Tenerife, Spain, where I match my artistic projects and exhibitions, with photography and Art-direction.
