Hi, my name is Elisa, I'm 21 years old and I live in Italy. 
My passion for photography started about five or six years ago, when my parents gave me a photocamera. 
A few years later I tried on my own to do a bit of post-production.  Then a couple of years ago, I began to see things  in a new way, and I understood that the world hides beauties that can be captured only through the eyes. 
But... beautiful things should not be forgotten! Trips, for example: they change you inside, teach you to love others and yourself, and all that you have around. This is the reason why I take pictures. In order to live again and again the emotions that I felt the first time I saw something beautiful.
I can't wait to leave for Barcelona!

Sara

I've been Sara since 26 years. I've always been curious, eccentric, in search of unseen details. I've been writing forever, composing with words and lights: the light of noonday and the pallor of the moon at the dawn. A photo has a soul, the one that I read in my subjects'eyes. A photo aims at observer's heart, and shakes this one. This heart will not be the same. A photo tells a private, collective and universal story. A photo is one way, my way to feel life and to transmit it.

I’m Joana, from Lisbon, Portugal ! I’m 40, 3 wonderful kids, a work that I love, but life is much more ! I called myself writer and dreamer. Writer because since I remember I write poetry , and also something else. Dreamer, because I live in a world that dreams come true! I also love photos because photos can say a lot of things even without a single word. And that is amazing! And of course as a writer and a dreamer I love to read, because that makes me dream and dream, and dream! I’m not a specialist in photos but I want to learn more. I want to know another people and places. So I find myself in this amazing opportunity to make things different. So should we embrace a new adventure?
