About Me - Pia Parolin

About Me

Born and raised in Italy, I studied biology in Germany and in Brazilian Amazonia. Passionate tropical ecologist with PhD, I always carry my camera with me since the day my father gave me the first Minolta at the age of 9. Living on the French Riviera since 2005, I love to capture light, colours and movements.

With my "Promenade Moments" series from 2017 on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, I want to give back some colour and light to the victims of the 2016 terrorist attack by donating metal prints of my pictures to the associations (Promenade des Anges; Hospital Lenval; Habitat & Humanisme) and with photography workshops.

I take my pictures with my Olympus E-M5 II and a Fujifilm X100F. I keep postproduction at a minimum and try to take the picture in its almost final form right away with my camera.
