Valeria Ferraro is a freelance photographer based in Italy, focusing on social and political issues.
She is fascinated by people voicing out their ideas and positions in public spaces but also, recently, she started approaching documentary photography, with a more reflexive eye on the urban landscape in marginal and multi-ethnic peripheries.
Beside independent journals (WJ, Frontiere News, Dinamo Press), she published in foreign newspapers (Der Freitag, Neues Deutschaland, Expressen) and exhibited both at national and international level. Recently, she became contributor of the agency Polaris.
Since May 2015 she has been cooperating with the online webzine Witness Journal, dedicated to photojournalism and documentary photography.
