Pamela Testa (b. 1980) is an italian artist living and working in Abruzzo, a beautiful region located between sea and mountains.
She is an emerging photographer who loves Art in all its forms and her images are in some ways inspired by Japanese traditional culture and aesthetic.
She graduated in Japanese Language, Art and Culture at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and during her studies she was very impressed by Shintoist and Buddhist philosophy, above all the concept of Impermanence and the principle of Interdependence.
It could be said that in her works there is what in Japanese is called “Mono no Aware”, an expression that literally is translated as “the pathos of things” and indicates that the beauty of things is in their impermanence.
