Si Fest 2019 : Melissa Ianniello – “Wish it was a coming out”


This young documentary photographer, as she defines herself, was born in Naples in 1991 and lives in Bologna. After studying philosophy, she acquired, as autodidact, a good knowledge of photographic tools. Since, she had to be seeking recognition through the many competitions in which she participates.

After the discovery of all the works on display I could not find anything to say. After reflection, his work shows and glorifies silence. Everything is present inside the showroom and yet nothing is said, even the texts inevitable  hanged to justify the presence of the works and the author biography turn out to be totally useless and superfluous. All the images are sufficient and pleasant. There is nothing to add : loneliness, homosexuality, old age, misunderstanding, isolation, love, regret, tenderness, etc. everything is present in every image, and everything is entangled, everything exists, everything communicates … and every word becomes totally useless. Underlying, there is still a small will of bias (remains of a personal challenge); but this extra passion becomes really useless in this case. The Word is image.

The quality of the photographic work is at the height of the author’s ambitions, the choice of lights, the compositions, the focal lengths are rarely faulted and confirm that the mastery of the tool is essential for creative transmission without parasite.
