katiamandelliI was born in 1974 in Lugano, in 2005 I moved to Morcote, where I currently reside and work. I started to get interested in photography young self-taught and learned the basics . Since 1994, my images have begun to be appreciated in Ticino in several group exhibitions. The great passion led me quickly to a level of preparation that allowed me to teach photography inside the Ticino camera clubs. In 2005 I met the man who would become my husband (also a professional photographer for over twenty years ) and in 2007 I opened a photographic studio with him in Morcote with the brand KWemotions photography (later MAKRO photographers ) specialized in wedding photography. In parallel with the professional, in recent years I have begun to explore more seriously abstract photography with my personal research project which I gave the name of VisiografiKa. In 2011 the project was ready to be presented and the results of my research began to be concretely appreciated in various group and solo exhibitions.
