Margherita “Margot” Errante is an established Italian photographer and sinologist. She started her career in photography in China, where she is best known for her moody portraits that feature subjects in intimate settings and poses. She is a polyglot and has a multidisciplinary background: after Chinese studies she specialised in Cultural Anthropology of Asian countries; she studied Fundamentals of Neurobiology and is currently enrolled in a program of Advanced Studies in Buddhist Science and Philosophy at Institute Lama Tzong Khapa, Italy. Driven by her desire to understand the human mind, Margot’s body of work investigates the construction of the Self and its interaction with our internal and external environments. While recognising in photography her ideal language for expression, she turns to neuroscience and meditation to comprehend the mind-body relationship.
