Filippo Del Vita and Laura Garcia Serventi met while studying at the prestigious Center for Contemporary Photography "Fondazione Studio Marangoni" in Florence.
Filippo born and raised in Italy had been early introduced to photography by his grandfather and Laura, Argentinean, became interested in the medium when attending the School of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires.
Ever since they met, a profound collaboration grew between them.
Their Italian years were mostly devoted to art. Their work has been selected by numerous awards and exhibited at the Triennale of Milan, the Contemporary Art Fair Artissima, the Biennale in Reus Spain, the Fotofestiwal in Poland, the Lodz Festival in Lithuania and the Italian Foundation of Photography just to mention a few. Meanwhile they also started working on fashion and still life projects and their work is regularly used for advertising and published in American and International magazines.
They live and work between Milan and New York where they founded Effelle Photography.
