Pina Chiarandà was born in Sicily.
She studied Arts and Philosophy in Milan.
As she started her photographic career, she focused on architecture, reportage, as well as portraits. When it comes to architecture, she is always searching for the most important part of a building. Through her photos, she looks to convey "What was the architect thinking when he created this?" and "How did he perceive the light?"
Black-and-white photos are still what fascinate her the most, believing that Without any colour, the message becomes even more direct.
Being a good photographer is equivalent to being a good storyteller, as one can not always be there to explain the inner meaning of their photos to all those who look at them.
The photos themselves must tell the whole story.
