Giulia Frigieri is a young Italian based photojournalist and documentary photographer, focusing on themes such as Identity, female empowerment and inter-generational relationships in the MENA region and the Mediterranean.

Giulia moved to London  at the age of 19 where she lived for over six years, graduating in Anthropology and Media at Goldsmiths University.

Since then, a lot happened and everything changed. Her passion for portraits and storytelling blossomed alongside her anthropological studies and after a nomadic two years on a house boat on the canals of London and a bunch of internships in the British creative industry, Giulia took off to several global adventures that took her to live in Morocco for some time and to study storytelling and photojournalism at the Danish School of Media and Journalism, in Aarhus, Denmark.

In November 2018, she got selected to partecipate at the Nikon Noor Masterclass in Turin with Sanne de Wilde, Benedicte Kurzen and Francescao Zizola as mentors.

Her work have been published on Italian and foreign magazines such as D la Repubblica, Io Donna, Vogue Arabia, British Journal of photography, Culture Trip, de Volkskrant, Vice, i-D magazine and Aperture Foundation.

Giulia is now based in Paris and she’s often off to the Middle East.
