Welcome to my portfolio page and thank you for dropping by.
My name is Alessandra Mignardi, I am an Italian freelance photographer and I live in Tilburg, the Netherlands, with my family since 2006.
My home town in the heart of Italy was too small for me, as a teenager I wanted to be an Aid Worker and tell about it with my photos. Which I did in Iraq, India and Afghanistan right after studying Political Sciences and Development Studies in Rome.
Proudly I am a now a full time mother of three children who never had a nanny: this requires a high level of mobility and stamina, managerial, negotiation and interpersonal skills in three languages, 24/7 -365 days a year.
It’s against my food religion to eat ready-made processed food: I am a total foodie and sourdough bread nerd. Through food photography I like to tell stories.
My style of photography is a combination of my life style and skills. I am a keen observer and do not like to intrude, rather I like to portray the life and stories of people by capturing details from different perspectives.
