Milan-based fashion photographer Zoe Natale Mannella was born in 1997 before moving to and growing-up in Caserta, Italy. Her passion for photography started when she was very young, mainly focused on portraits and diaries of her life. In 2017 she moved in Milan where she developed an interest in fashion and began shaping her aesthetic and creating personal work with an emphasis on feminine imaginary with an ironic twist. Her current collaborations include Virgo Collective and Purple fashion magazine and with features included in the publications Metal, i-D and Vogue.
Taxìdi is a celebration of beauty, diversity and youth. A trip between the emblems of South of Italy, the statues of Madonna, notti della Taranta e la pizzica. A photographic project born spontaneously from a group of friends who found themselves together in the wild and sunny Puglia. It’s about the synergy of partners, of feeling free and of living together. The project has developed into a wider focus on women and the energy developed when put together, always with the intention of capturing a positive and intimate view.
