My name is Irene Santoni, born in Florence and I'm 24 years old. After the Scientific High School Diploma achieved in 2012, I enrolled to the degree course of "Planning and Management of Events" at the University of Florence ( I graduated in July 2017).
Photography is undoubtedly my deepest fondness, born naturally thanks to my many travels in Italy and abroad since I was a child. I have been always a carefull observer so I started to develop this attitude through the lens of a camera. Together with the university course I started my journey in the "photography world" attending a three-years course at Fondazione Studio Marangoni in Florence, one of the most important italian academy of photography allowing me to develop and deepen my photographic vision and to widen the range of photographic fields.
I graduated at Fondazione Studio Marangoni in September 2015 and during these three years I have come closer to documentary photography especially to social issues.
