Cristina Coral was educated in Italy, where she lives and works as a photographer. Her approach to photography and its development was almost entirely self-taught. She has lived her childhood in an artistic environment, as her father, Giampaolo Coral, was a composer. Music and art have always been a very important part of her life. She has chosen the camera as her main artistic expression since 2012. Photographing has become an imperative language.
Cristina loves experimenting with light, colors, space, and female figures to create poetic photographs. At the first glance, the images seems to be rather static, but they embody a rich story behind every singular detail. The muses, which are mysterious young ladies, are captured by the artist in a minimal environment. An essence of fragility and loneliness are dominating most of Cristina's photographs, but it is up to the viewer to study and capture the hidden narrative behind these enigmatic scenographies.
Cristina’s photos have received prestigious acclaim, she has participated in both group and solo shows, and she has been featured in publications like Vogue, Art Tribune, Art-Sheep, and Le journal de la Photographie.
