Valeria Scrilatti studied Photography and Visual Arts at Florence Libera Accademia di Belle Arti and since 2016 she’s been represented by Contrasto agency. Early works have investigated zoological institutions putting animals on display inside artificial copies of their habitats and the transformation underway in the former suburbs east of Rome. Afterwards, she realized reportages in Tunisia about racial discrimination and minorities who have been excluded from the democratic process; in Georgia on the cultural revolution carried out by the youth of the first post-Soviet generation; in Italy on the reception of migrants through multidimensional integration processes. Recently, thanks to the Innovation in Development Reporting Grant Programme, she traveled to report on maternal mortality in sub-Saharan Africa.

Her images have been published by Italian and international magazines including The New York Times, Courrier International, Internazionale, The Wall Street Journal,El País, Die Zeit, Der Spiegel, Il Reportage, Vice Magazine, D La Repubblica, IO Donna.

She currently lives in Rome, Italy.
