I am a graphic designer with a focus on editorial design and documentary photography. I focus on participative photography, keeping an eye on marginalities, be they social, economical or geographical. I grew up on the side of a deep lake, there Erica and I gave birth to Voce Collective.

︎︎ Erica Belli

I am a photographer and artist with a vivid interest towards photovoice and participative art practices. I am a teacher and lecturer and with my work I try to spread these practices in different areas of interest. Through photography and image reading workshops, I involve participants on a path of deeper understanding of their life experience and I challenge them to shift their focus on the places and situations they are currently living in.
