I am interested in finding, seeing and documenting the intimate and the supernatural elements, already present in our ordinary reality, but not so visible to the distracted eye.
I am looking for an ideal symmetry between what exists and what is veiled but still exists, being challenged by the possibility and the impossibility of documenting this ideal perfection.
Aziza Vasco was born in Fiesole, a small town on the hills close to Florence (Italy) in 1981.
Even though she’s spent most of her life in Milan, her mother’s city, she has always felt a sense of belonging to the countryside.
In 2003 she was studying Literature and decided to change and enroll for a photography course at IED in Milan.
In 2004 she continued her studies moving to Florence where she attended the degree in Visual Arts and Photography at LABA University.
After attending an MA in Photojournalism at ISFCI in Rome in 2008, she assisted photoreporter Francesco Zizola at his lab, 10b Photography.
Once back to Milan, she works as a photographer, assistant, and retoucher for fashion, design and architecture, alongside working on her personal projects.
