Marco Maria Zanin was born in Padua in October 1983.
An eclectic humanist, he first took a degree in Literature and Philosophy, and then in International Relations, obtaining a Master’s degree in psychology. At the same time he developed his artistic career, and travelled widely in different parts of the world, putting into practice the “displacement” so essential for a critical analysis of social contexts, and to fuel his research aimed at identifying the common spaces of the human community.
Myth and archetype as the submerged matrices of modern behaviour are the focus of his enquiry, which is based on observation of the relationship between man, territory and time.
His instrument of choice is photography, which is often used combining different techniques and transcending the borders of other artistic disciplines.
He lives and works between Padua and São Paulo, Brazil.
