Sara Marinangeli (born 1993 in Macerata, Italy) is a photographer and video artist, based in London. In 2016 she obtained her BA with Honours in Fine Art, in Florence, after taking part in the Erasmus + project in FAMU, Academy of Performing Arts, Prague. In 2019 Sara graduated with Distinction from the Royal College of Art, MA Photography.
Recurring themes of her body of work are memories (personal and collective), time, and loss. Indelible marks part of everybody's life.
In her practice, she combines portraits, landscapes, still-life photography, and moving image using analogue mediums. Films give her the chance to mark and emphasize the connection between the handcraft and time passing.
The darkroom practice is a significant part of her body of work. She learned to accept the mistakes as part of the work itself, considering the image as a unique piece, sometimes unrepeatable and even more valuable for this reason. 
From printmaking to photography and video. Through her practice, she intends to give a new life to processes, moments, people or feeling that are part of our past and remain present through images.
Selected for the SW Darkroom Residency Award and TheLabyrinth Lab / RCA Award 2019. Currently part of London Creative Network. Her work has been shown in Italy, England, America, and Czech Republic.
