Besides, she has been collaborating for many years for the magazine L’Informatore Unicoop Toscana. Some of her works have appeared in reviews like Arte Mondadori, Zoom, Photo, Progresso Fotografico.

She has always chosen topics focused on a combination of ethics and aesthetics creating portraits carried out with rare sensitiveness. Her aim is to deal with controversial issues like the spreading of Aids in South Africa, the sufferance of the victims of pedophilic priests or the dignity of people affected by albinism. Silvia Amodio has established herself in the world of professional author photography showing her works in institutional venues in Italy, United States, France, England and the Netherlands. She has published several books, among them: “Volti positivi” (2007), “Tutti i colori del bianco” (2012) “Nessun uomo è un’isola” (2012), “L’Aquila riflessa” (2012). In 2008 one of her photo belonging to the project “Volti positivi” was shortlisted - the only Italian work - for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Prize organized by the National Portrait Gallery of London.

In 2012 she was awarded the “Premio Creatività-Nettuno Photo Festival” and the “Premio Città di Benevento” for photography.
