Born in Taranto in 1993, after graduating in Cultural Heritage, she was admitted with a scholarship for a Master's degree in Photography and Visual Design at NABA, Milan. Subsequently, she collaborated with renowned photographic studios in the field of architecture and design. She then worked as a photographer and editor for a contemporary art magazine. She continued her studies in Digital Cultures at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, where she graduated with honours.
Claudia Fuggetti's research sees the creation of images as the endpoint of a visual investigation balanced between the real and the unreal, intending to propose new reading keys to interpreting the contemporary. Going beyond the pure objectivity of the visible, through photography, video and digital painting, she creates alternative and possible worlds, which become a mirror of human tension towards the future and technology. The image, constructed or captured, becomes part of a subjective view that analyzes new perspectives and scenarios, enriched by personal use of colour and different mediums that coexist with the photographic practice.
Her works have been exhibited at Fondazione Feltrinelli, Fondazione Carriero, Noorderlicht International Photo Festival, Les Rencontres de la Photographie Arles and have been selected for The Censored Exhibition at Copenhagen Photo Festival (2021). She is also one of the 150 emerging talents in Europe for Fresh Eyes 2021 by GUP Magazine and British Journal of Photography's Edition 365 winner. Other publications include Rolling Stone Black Camera, Der Greif, Libération and Paper Journal.
