About

(1985 – based in Italy)

Clara Vannucci is an italian documentary photographer mostly focused on the Criminal Justice System.
She has always been interested in photography, since she was very young. After the degree in graphic design, at the University of Architecture of Florence, she decided to move to New York City where she became an intern at Magnum Photos and the assistant, for over two years, of the photojournalist Donna Ferrato.

Her stories tell the prison system of both Italy and US: with Crime and Redemption, a reportage about theatre in Volterra’s prison, she shows how the method of acting in prison can be a useful tool to changing the way the criminal mind works. In NYC, with the help of Donna Ferrato, she took pictures in the Rikers Island Jail, developing a project about the Battered Women Section of the biggest US jail.

She has been awarded two yearlong residency at FABRICA, where she developed her third project about the criminal justice system: Bail Bond. Bondsmen, defendants & bounty hunters.
Bail Bond is a visual tale set in contemporary New York. By weaving together stories of bondsmen, defendants and bounty hunters, the reportage sheds light on an unexplored edge of law and order in the US, a place where crime and security collide and amalgamate.

She teaches photography to the inmates at the Maximum Security Opera Prison. She’s freelance for several magazines and newspapers, mostly covering editorial, commercial and travel assignments.
