Clara Giaminardi is an Italian fashion photographer. Her work focuses on the expression of the female body and beauty of imperfection.
In both her editorial and personal photography, Giaminardi explores femininity as channeled through interpretations of feminist literature, alongside performance art and contemporary dance. Giaminardi’s work retains a performative quality, particularly in images that capture fleeting moments such as the crack of an egg in a hand, or bees hovering by a model’s eye. Having produced work for the likes of Vogue Italia, Giaminardi presents images that appear reminiscent of Renaissance paintings, often infusing the exhibition of high fashion garments with still life set-ups and studio lighting that resonates with an awareness of painterly techniques.
