Daria Bonera

DB Agency - Milano / Founder / Director

Born in Milan, after graduating in Fashion Marketing from St Martins School in London, I started working for Contrasto and in 2004 for Grazia Neri Photo Agency, where I represented several international agencies and photographers and I selected new talents for the Agency.
In 2008 I went to New York to work as the agent of documentary photographer Donna Ferrato and representing Grazia Neri’s photographers all through the US, while collaborating with the major publications.

In 2009, I came back to Milano and I started my own Agency, DB, where I represent a few selected documentary, fashion photographers, film directors and illustrators for fashion, advertising and digital campaigns.

I am a producer and independent visual editor for editorial projects and digital contents.

I have been invited as a portfolio reviewer at several festivals, like Les Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles and as a member part of the Jury of many International Photography Awards and a nominator for the Prix Pictet.
I have been a tutor on “the Flying Course” with Stanley Greene in Paris and at “Love Venetian Style: an Intimate View” with Donna Ferrato in Venice workshop. I collaborate as a mentor with some photography schools in Italy and I teach visual communication.
