The act of reading a book is isolated and vested with powerful meanings. It is the introspective side that emerges, the one that talks about the interiority of a person alone, with the sole company of a silent friend, in a space that whiteness makes immense, all-encompassing and profound, in which one has the sensation of being able to wander for an inestimable amount of time.
Sacconi, who works as a teacher in Florence, has always had a great passion for photography, which inspired her to explore its most hidden recesses and probe her artistic talent. Her natural instinct for pictures has often taken her away from her birth place to devote herself to the experience of travelling, camera always in tow. Therefore, she embarked on a dual career as a teacher in Florence and photographer around the world. She does not focus on the natural landscape, however, but on a particular type of artistic subject: architecture. Sacconi has always been fascinated by cities and concentrates on urban environments and the buildings/symbols of capitals. Sky scrapers, light, skies and people are the subjects present in every picture. Light breaks up against the glass of ultramodern buildings, and historical edificesare captured in the interplay of shadows that vaults, courtyards and windows create on the ground. La Gabbia Armonica, Soul Vision and PhotoOne are just a few of the web galleries that proposed her works in her early years, which werefollowed by the highlight of her career when she received Honourable Mention in Leica Talent – Travel Photography. This exceptional recognition was reconfirmed by two important publications in Fotocult magazine in 2014 and 2015, the year she also displayed another pair of photographs at the collective exhibition inaugurated by the Black Box Gallery in Portland, Oregon.
