Hi there! I'm Sara, I'm a photographer and writer and i travel the world trying to understand what Beauty means...
I was born and raised in Northern Italy but I moved to Los Angeles right out of high school to pursue a career in contemporary dance. Eventually, because of Injuries I had to stop dancing. Coincidentally I was given a camera around that time and I found new purpose into photography, venturing down the fashion photography lane at first, turning my newly found passion into a full time career within a few months from the first click.
After 3 years working as a fashion photographer in NYC, LA, London and Milan, one day I started to feel torn inside as I realized the kind of images I was producing were contributing to create very unrealistic standards of beauty that made countless women suffer.
In October 2015 I created QUEST FOR BEAUTY, and opened a blog BEHINDTHEQUEST.COM I left the fashion industry and I started traveling the world for the project.
Since then my work has taken me across the world, from NYC to Vietnam, to Morocco to Cuba to Iran and many more countries in between.
Throughout the years I developed a good and organic following on social media, also thanks to my controversial expose article ‘Instagram created a monster’ who got me mentions in the New York Times, Daily Mail, Vanity Fair, Huffington Post, Sunday Times and many more.
I’m now based in Italy and keep traveling, working with brands, agencies and NGOs, telling stories and creating something meaningful as honestly and authentically as I can.
