Letizia Lopreiato is a multilingual (English, Spanish, Italian, French) visual poetess and photo-based installation artist based in UK and Ireland. Alongside her autobiographical and documentary work, the artist's background is allowing her to express her and develop her vocation by creating art-environments promoting Inclusion and Cooperation in Photography.

Letizia's work is engaged in reclaiming a different way to tell a story: from empathy to connection, from impairment to empowerment, from grief to love, from confinement to acceptance, social inclusion and community engagement with our environment, both at an individual and at a collective level.

Letizia's photography work has been acquired by the Office of Public Works (OPW Ireland) and it is now part of the Irish State Arts' Collection and National Archives, as well as of the PhotoIreland Irish Books' Collection. 

Letizia is Magnum Photos long term mentee, she writes and performs her poetry in English, Italian, Spanish and French. She has seen her work of visual poetry both featured and published internationally, across the UK, France, Ireland, Italy and Spain.

Letizia works with the media of 35mm film expanded photography, 16 mm moving image, poetry, spoken word, voice / sound installation. The artist embraced film photography, by introducing a multidisciplinary approach to her poetry, three years ago, only a few months after her visualimpairment was diagnosed. 

2021 marks for Lopreiato, the year other creative gaze's expansion, into the realm of moving image, medium to facilitate the awareness of her visual poetry creative documentary style, and the interconnected layers of meaning of these elements. The artist chose to explore , inspired by the desire of incorporating the the realm of moving image, moved by her innate passion for cinema and by the use of her late dad’s film equipment in her art practice.

Letizia Lopreiato is 2022 solo exhibitor at PhotoFringe Brighton, UK, 2023, 2022 and 2021 solo exhibitor at both PhotoIrelandFestival, Dublin (Ireland), and Exposure Alberta Photography Festival, Canada, with her long-term personal documentaries: her autobiographical project titled From the Front, and Sonia’s Trees, this last being the artist's first of an on-going series of social documentaries in the form of artivism awareness campaigns on the topic ofeco-sustainability and eco-systems' restoration.

Letizia Lopreiato’s visual poetry and photography practice is inspired by her academic research background in International Relations for Cooperation, Psychology, Sociology and Semiotics.  

In particular, her current research work at the intersection between ART AND RESPONSIBLE TECHNOLOGY INCLUDING GENERATIVE AI, with a focus on the realm of Psychology and Neuroscience, and on how these affects society's behavioural archetypes in relation with EXCLUSION AND MARGINALIZATION, has informed Lopreiato’s art practice since 2020, resulting in the development of a more intimate text - image and voice / sound based journey of exploration for her audience.  

Letizia Lopreiato's documentary practice evolved thanks to a fundamental step she took, the inclusion of her multilingual spoken word in all her art-works, in the form of participative transmedia art installations. 

The artist is recipient of the Magnum Photos Long Term Mentorship since 2022,  and awardee of the Arts Council of Ireland Agility Award and Visual Arts Research Bursary.

In 2020 Letizia completed her Postgraduate Course in Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship at Trinity College Dublin. She comes from a Magna Cum Laude MA Degree in International Relations for Cooperation and Development, and she holds a BA in Political Studies with a major in the use of media within politics and international organisations, from Universita' Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano (Milan, Italy) and Copenhagen University (Copenhagen, Denmark), Carsten Niebuhr Research Centre - Department of Cross Cultural and Regional Studies.  

Letizia is now leveraging her international project management professional experience, matured  over a decade working in the technology industry across four different countries (Ireland, Spain, Denmark and Italy), while investigating the avenues of responsible technologies integration and generative AI in her art practice, from idea's conception to execution, and exhibition of her inclusive art installations

Overall this multi-disciplinary and multi-layered artistic approach has allowed Letizia Lopreiato, to focus both on the production and on the perception, of  multilingual text image and voice relationship in her transmedia art practice, focused on inclusion, cross-cultural cooperation and justice. 

In Letizia's words:

"Documenting reality through storytelling, to explore social issues and uncover social injustice has always been the focus of my poetry. This opportunity has become more powerful to met hanks to the vehicle for empathy that is the lens."
