Vera Rossi was born in Milan in 1968. She has been photographing nature, still lifes and works of art since 1996 and in 2013, her photographs featured in an installation event at The Armory Show, New York’s premier international art fair. Since 2017, she has exhibited annually at the MIA Photo Fair in Milan while in 2019, she was invited to show at the Landscape Museum (Museo del Paesaggio) in Verbania and the prestigious Milan exhibition space of Italian stylist Antonio Marras, Nonostante Marras.
Rossi’s work plays with the concept of transparency. Windows and vases are the subject matter of many of her photographs as she examines the way natural elements such as flowers and trees are seen through the delicate ‘lens’ of the transparent glass. Her research extends to her use of medium, her preferred printing support being plexiglass.
Rossi’s photographs are present in many private collections including those of Morris Adjmi, the late Germano Celant, Steve Hannah, Peppe Servillo, Paolo Taviani and Milena Vukotic.
