Gaia Squarci


Gaia Squarci, 1988, is a photographer and videographer who divides her time between Milan and New York, where she teaches Digital Storytelling at ICP (International Center of Photography). She's a contributor of Prospekt agency and Reuters. With a background in Art History and Photojournalism, she leans toward a personal approach that moves away from the descriptive narrative tradition in documentary photography and video. Her work is focused on themes linked to the relationship between human beings and the environment, disability, aging and family relationships.  Gaia is a IWMF fellow (International Women’s Media Foundation), and POYi awarded her cinematography and photography work respectively in 2014 and 2017. She was among the 30 under 30 Women Photographers selected by Photo Boite for 2018 and her installation Broken Screen has been selected for the exhibition reGeneration3 at Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne in 2015. Her work has been exhibited in the United States, Italy, France, Switzerland, UK, Mexico and China.
