Valeria Gaia was born in Treviso, Italy.
She studied art history at the University of Padova, Italy.
After having moved to Paris, France she had her first approach to photography as a photographer’s assistant before moving ahead to becoming a portrait and documentary photographer. From analogue she moved on to digital photography whilst still continuing to work in daylight, capturing shapes, colors and light effects directly taken from nature. Since the year 2000 prolonged travels to Oceania and North Africa inspired her a different approach to photography focusing upon the observation of the visible reality and its essential elements: the mineral world, the liquid element, the plant life, starting a trilogy entlited: LIQUIDA-MINERALIA-PLANTAE.
Furthermore, since 2017 with the book “The Cities of Silence” Valeria Gaia’s photography has started to get involved in memory of the human cultural patrimony.
