Chiara Zonca, born in Milan, Italy, is a fine art photographer based in Vancouver, Canada. She seeks isolated landscapes as a form of exploration of self. She documents specific moments in time when solitude and open spaces alter her landscape perception.
“I am interested in barren, mystical, untinged landscapes; places that challenge my perception of the earth until it becomes somewhere completely unfamiliar. I am drawn to the idea of creating work I could have seen in a dream, the render of a hazy memory where natural and surreal meet.” - Chiara Zonca, 2021
