In 1992 she graduated from the Political Science Department and then worked as an assistant in the studio of Claudio Abate from 1992 - 1993. In 2004 her book “Centouno Ritratti”, curated by Raffaele Gavarro, was published by Gli Ori publications. Her book “Imusmis”, also curated by Raffaele Gavarro, was published by Silvana Editoriale publications in 2011. Other publications on her work include Marco Scotini’s text “Territorio Familiare” in 1998 and Bruno Corà’s text “Imusmis 2” in 2014. After receiving a chancellor diploma from The Florence Institute of Psychosynthesis in 2011, she went on to earn her masters degree in the field of Art Therapy from the University Tre in Rome, in 2013.
From a young age Brunella Longo had the opportunity to be in close contact with internationally acclaimed artists and was educated by photographer Claudio Abate. In an environment like Cassino Museum of Contemporary Arts, part of her job gave her the opportunity of meeting with different forms of art and has provided another dimension to her relationship with art. The researcher’s attribute she brought into photography, which was more suitable to her personal susceptibility, is mostly fed by aesthetic and technical relationships. She continues her photography adventure, of which she began with portrait studies, with more experimental and metaphysical fictions of landscape based on symbols. In addition to books on photography that she published, as a lecturer she continues her didactic formation studies as well. She also performs studies as a specialist in the field of art therapy.
