Carola Cappellari is an editorial and documentary photographer based between London and Gaziantep, Turkey.

Her work alternates autobiographical and documentary approaches to explore themes of identity, mental health, family dynamics and migration. Different media and objects are often combined into installations, creating multi-level narratives and providing the audience with a more tangible and personal experience.

With a background in education, Carola believes in the use of participatory creative practices as tools to engage communities and promote intercultural dialogue and, in the past year, she has helped organising photography and storytelling workshops in collaboration with NGOs based in Turkey for women and children from refugee communities. She is currently studying a Master in Human Rights, Migration and Intercultural Inclusion at the University of Bologna.
