Episode 225: Costanza Santilli is an Italian artist working in Great Britain.

“Exposures” brings new artists to the Nearest Truth audience from our subscriber base. These artists have supported NT through their economic contributions and are gifted individuals working in the medium of photography. Though we continue to bring top-placed individuals working in the medium to the platform, we find it is equally important to bring attention to up-and-coming artists, curators, writers, and enthusiasts to the forefront. I appreciate the support of these individuals and I hope in this small effort that I can repay the support.

Costanza is an artist whose focus is on land, ecology, rurality, and belonging. Her large-format photographs exhibit a tendency of her thinking about place as an artist with concerns about what it means to migrate and what it means to find a stasis or home in a country like Great Britain in the age of Brexit. There is an outward focus on the land, animals, and the politics of ecological place, but in many ways, the work is about longing and movement in the 21st Century. The photographs are also gorgeous.

Costanza and I spoke about her background and her time in London. We spoke a bit about her commercial work and some of the surprising crossover that we have in music. We also spoke about the horrific experience that ended her interest in photographing live music. It was a fascinating conversation with an artist whose deep knowledge about the medium, its history, and the passion for which she pursues it radiates throughout. Please tune in to this special first Exposures episode.
