Born in Pisa in 1974, Elena Bennati has been passionate about dance and music as far as she can remember and began exploring photography at an early age thanks to her father and her uncle.

She released her first photographic work as a teenager portraying moments of daily life, landscapes and animals.

She initially started experimenting with self shots but later she turned towards portraits: her passion about photography and fascination with dance merge together to develop new introspective meanings in self portraits first, focusing on shooting other dancers afterwards in the attempt to capture the essence of the movement into a still image.

When shooting self portraits in particular, her photography becomes an opportunity for exploration, analysis and self awareness, defining a conceptual escalation from the abstract to the examination of what constitutes the truth, and its acceptance.
