"A set of photos about the Big Apple is probably nothing new to photo lovers. What wants to be innovative in this book is the point of view used to look at the most desired and talked-about city of the world. A voyage through the heaven and hell of New York City, a deep scan of its double spiritual and earthly philosophy."
"Una serie di foto sulla Grande Mela non sembrerà nulla di nuovo agli amanti della fotografia. La cosa innovativa di questo libro vuole essere il punto di vista con cui viene osservata la città più desiderata e chiaccherata del mondo. Un viaggio attraverso il paradiso e l'inferno di New York, uno sguardo profondo alla sua doppia filosofia spirituale e terrena".
Margherita Marchioni was born in Bologna in 1984 and graduated in Foreign Languages in 2007. She speaks Italian, English, Spanish and French. She is attending a two-year degree course in Journalism at the University of Parma. In the last few years, she got interested in photography and in the possibilities of mixing words and images. After trying digital low-budget cameras, she decided it was time to have complete control over the process of shooting and creating. This pushed her into buying a professional SLR camera, which she now uses to photograph her travel experiences and cinema festivals. She started with a small course of photography and then passed on to more complex ones. At the moment she is discovering the wonders of shooting and developing her own rolls of film. Apart from master photographers – Avedon, Berengo Gardin, Salgado and Leibovitz are her favourites – she finds great inspiration on Flickr.
