Oriana Majoli was born in 1979 in southern Italy, in the province of Salerno.
She soon devoted herself to drawing and painting, up to her university days with a particular interest in portraiture and nude, which represent a constant in her photographic research.
Supports both digital and analogue photography, setting up a studio for personal installation and development.
The dark room leads her to give life to the first projects on medium format black&white and color films, and begins a passion so overwhelming as to obsessively condition everything else.
The thought, as well as the visual field, becomes metastatically photographic and feed on an insatiable curiosity, especially artistic: from painting to music, passing through literature, cinema and vintage Harley Davidson.
After several shorts stories in digital, it ends in 2017, three years after the first shot, the project LVMEN OBSCVRA, followed by De Profundis(2019),
the project instant polaroid PERSONA(2019)
the work entitled NIHIL(2019) and her last work TESTAE(2020).
