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 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 photographers and film directors for fashion, advertising and digital campaigns.

I have been invited as a portfolio reviewer at several festivals and as a member part of the Jury of many International Photography Awards, a nominator for the Prix Pictet and I collaborate as a mentor and teacher of visual communication with some photography schools.

From 2009 to 2019 I was the photo editor of the magazine “Touring National Geographic Traveler Italia”.

Since 2021, I am the visual editor of Cesura photo collective for editorial and commercial projects.
