Adriana Benetti Longhini was born in Arusha, Tanzania in Africa below the slopes of Mount Meru and her majestic neighbour Kilimanjaro. Her school years where spent at Arusha School and then at the International School Moshi. Her childhood days were filled with memories of having glorious fun at our family’s coffee plantation called “Maswere” and numerous holidays with grandparents and family at Lake Manyara, Mombasa, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.
During the 70’s Adriana’s parents left Tanzania for greener pastures in South Africa, firstly Durban and eventually to Johannesburg. During her 30 years in South Africa, she developed an intense love for this “Rainbow Nation”, from the Drakensberg, (Eastern Transvaal) Mpumalanga, Wild Coast, the Garden Route to the beautiful mother city Cape Town.
She studied Fine Arts in Durban, Kwazulu Natal where she ventured into the world of photography, loving the hours in the darkroom developing predominately black and white photos.
In recent years Adriana Benetti Longhini has gone back to live in Asiago, northern Italy where her ancestors used to live. She has a huge love for Europe and the diverse beauty she offers, and this continues to inspire her to use the magic of light and capture what her eye sees, and share it with the rest of the world.
