Davide Maria Ferrari was born in Italy (1974). He graduated in Political Sciences and worked for governmental organisations for almost 13 years before dedicating himself to photography. After spending the last 10 years travelling along Europe and South America, in 2015 he moved in a small rural town a few kilometres far from Lago Maggiore in the north western region of Italy and where he is currently living.
His work is centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The use of large format cameras combined with alternative techniques, such as long expired Polaroid film or the wet plate collodion process, let him perceive and represent a beauty that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete, the balance between presence and absence, harmony and desolation, peace and loneliness.
