Made over the course of 10 years, Oyster is a visual diary compiled by Marzocchi as a ways to uncover clues in understanding his absent parents. 

At times bordering on frustration and violence his images express his search for a “culprit”, a cause for his dysfunctional childhood environment.

Using archival and original imagery, the artist ransacks the past to build a present in a process of forgiving and letting go, as a search to find love and healing. 

"This work represents my experience in recovering and understanding my parents, their life and their relationship towards myself. I never knew them well because they split when I was 6 years old, and they both died young. Drugs, addictions, jail and dysfunctional environment, these were constant elements. This work is focused on dealing and replacing all the doubts and the fears that I had. Exorcising the pain and the searching for love." 


Marco Marzocchi was born in Ferrara on January, 25th, 1974. He completed his photographicstudies at the Atelier Smedsby in Paris under the direction of JH Engstrome Margot Wallard.

In 2017 he followed a workshop with Jim Goldberg.

Founder of the independent photo publishing project OSCURA, he continues his personal photo research with long-term projects.
