Pia ParolinBorn and raised in Italy, Pia Parolin studied biology in Germany and in Brazilian Amazonia. A passionate tropical ecologist with PhD, she always carries her camera with her since the day her father gave her the first Minolta at the age of 9. Living on the French Riviera since 2005, she loves to capture light, colours and movements.

With her “Promenade Moments” series from 2017, captured on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, she wanted to give back some colour and light to the victims of the 2016 terrorist attack by donating metal prints of her pictures to the associations Promenade des Anges, Hospital Lenval, and Habitat & Humanisme and with photography workshops.

She takes her pictures with an Olympus E-M5 II and a FujiFilm X100F. She keeps postproduction at a minimum and tries to take the picture in its almost final form right away with her camera.

We talked with Pia about her Promenade Moments series, but also about her recent experience in Borneo, living side by side with the natives in a longhouse.

On October 20 and 21, Pia and Ugo will be leading a weekend photo workshop along the French Riviera / Côte d’Azur, in and around Nice and Antibes. Click here to sign up for it.
