Photographer Spotlight: Isabella Dell’olio


Isabella Dell’olio


This is Me: Portraits of Pathlight is a photography project that focuses the camera lens on people served by Pathlight throughout Western Massachusetts. Renowned local photographers have partnered with Pathlight to shoot portraits that convey the strength, beauty, complexity, and personality of people with intellectual disabilities and/or autism.

Meet photographer Isabella:

“I am inspired to capture the essential beauty of the moment, of people, streets, landscapes, and food of the New England valley where I live, the places I visit in my travels, and Italy, my home country. I was born and raised in Bologna, but I have lived for the past 20 years in Amherst, Massachusetts – very different locales, but both lively college towns that nourish my imagination. My work reflects my love for conversing, engaging and laughing with people in their surroundings, documenting details and character while revealing contrasts and similarities.”
