Cristina Faramo was born in Catania, Sicily. On completion of her artistic studies she graduated at “Accademia di Belle Arti”. Afterwards she continued studying photography travelling between Italy and America. Her work has been exhibited in festivals and published world wide in magazines such as Stern, Vision, Burn, Rolling Stone. In 2009 her personal research project that explores the intensity of human relationships "In The Mood For Love" was nominated as a finalist for the "Emerging Photographer Fund 2009" by The Magnum Cultural Foundation.
Her photographic research is expressed in the attempt to observe reality with ever new eyes capable of transferring the observer to a more intimate and evocative level of reality. Her images are born from the need to see the world in a different way, looking for the most intimate part of things, she follows light, colour and movement in a very instinctive way in order to be lead into an evocative and mysterious reality.
With an intimate approach to reality she focuses on internal human conditions expressed in an intimate search for something mystical that unites them with the Universe. She currently is living and working between Sicily and New York.
