Silvia was born and brought-up in Argentina. She's been an avid traveller from young and a passionate about different cultures and languages. By learning the origin and grammar she tries to understand the relations connected between language and the people that speak it.
In her childhood, she enjoyed the slide show nights in the living-room in her modest home in the outskirts of Buenos Aires, where her father, then a amateur photographer and owner of a Voigtländer, created a multimedia presentation with music coming out from a small Sony cassette player.
Even if she has been photographing for many years, she had a breakthrough after a workshop with Magnum photographer Nikos Economopoulos, the first of many more.
She has a variety of different projects, but the approach is always the same. She tries to create artistic images of what it's available before her eyes, not forcing any situation and keeping it as virgen and natural as she found it.
She has been living in Singapore for the past 20 years.
