Carla Iacono lives and works in Genoa, using photography and installations as expressive media.
Her work, focused on the themes of body and metamorphosis, mainly analyzes the delicate period of adolescence and its "rites of passage", seen as an extraordinary time of growth including the effort to reach its own identity.
The autobiographical elements, such as the use of her daughter as the subject of many images, emphasizes the representation and makes it a concrete symbol of the delicate path that, between doubts and anxieties, leads every adolescent to maturity.
Her works are present in public and private collections and published in numerous catalogs of exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
It’s a conceptual photography, using a mix of dream, irony and fantasy aiming to “reveal’ fragments of memory or unconscious resurfaced in a visible form from the depth of invisible.
