Lara Cappelli (b.1993) is an Italian photographer currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland. In her work, Lara explores the concept of identity, both within a social and private context. Caught between a fine art and a documentary approach, her images are greatly inspired by themes around social change, gender politics and feminism.
