(Tuscany, Italy -)
BiographyDaria Cipriani was born in Tuscany, Italy and she now lives in Vancouver, Canada.
Her love affair with the lens started at 19 when she boarded her first ship as a Merchant Marine officer, carrying a sextant and a small camera.
As she crossed the oceans the camera became her constant companion, documenting her experience. Today she continues to travel worldwide as a professional photographer.
She is internationally known for her images of people, their struggles and moments of joy; their interactions with their immediate societies and surroundings.
For the past three years Daria Cipriani has been engaged on a project with the Canadian First Nations native peoples, documenting their culture and their deep and abiding connection with nature, which are depicted in her latest works.
The images shown in this exhibit have been inspired by the Haida Gwaii islands and the Haida people, their totem poles and what they represent, their symbolism and the stories embedded within them.
Cipriani’s published books of photography include: The Journey Home, a story about First Nations children and their residential school; Paris — La Strada; New York — Connect and Disconnect; The Colors of Cuba; and A Soul Journey of India.
Daria Cipriani is represented by Simons Gallery (The Netherlands, Miami, Mexico City) and has exhibited twice in Art Basel Week Miami, at Spectrum 2015, and Aqua Art Miami in 2016, at New York Art-Expo in April 2017 and at Context Art Miami in December 2017 . Her work is included in the permanent art collection of Florida International University in Miami, Florida, housed at the FIU Honors College.
