SUMMER EDITION

 

 

 

         

THE  PARTICIPANTS

Ilaria

My name is Ilaria and I'm 31 years old. I'm from Sicily and I'm a psychologist. I'm a very curious person, so I love travelling and discovering new places and new cultures. My aim is to use photography like a kind of communication and expression.

 

I participated in Discover Krakow 8.

Maria

My name is Maria and I come from Slovakia.

 

I like to travel, especially visiting places I have never been before. For me the photography is more like a hobby or a way of escaping my daily routine and expressing my creativity. I consider myself more as an amateur photographer. Mostly I like to capture landscapes and regular daily moments or anything that catches my attention.

 

I participated in Discover Krakow 8 & Discover Sicily 3.

My name is Vanessa, I’m 40 and I was born in Udine, in the beautiful region of north-east of Italy named Friuli Venezia Giulia, where I live. I’m a lawyer and I love my job so much, but it’s also a very heavy-going work and so I really need being deep connected with nature and also doing something that make me mindless. I really love skiing and mountains. If I don’t find the snow, I go for trekking, hiking or climbing. For the past year I fell in love with photography and now I’m so enthusiastic to have the chance to do such an experience with people from all over the world.

 

I participated in Discover Krakow 10 and soon in Discover Marrakech 2

Vanessa

Traveling is nice looking carefully it is even more. the world gives sensational moments at any time, photography is to capture them and share them with the rest of planet.

 

I participated in Discover Krakow 3.

Alessandro

I am Indonesian and I have lived in Brussels for almost 3 years and I have been exploring this beautiful city.

 

I walk around and I love this city. Everything can be my inspiration; everything can be my object. I like the buildings, the streets, the parks, the culture and the people and i like taking a picture of food as well.

 

I am an artist, I like writing and painting besides the photography.

Jessica

I am Nicolae and I am a young amateur photographer, not your usual photographer because I like to experiment with my photos and mix them, shape them in something with a twist. I love taking portraits and look at the details that make that person unique and beautiful, because nobody is ugly, everyone has a story to be told, something that they want to get a cross a mark that they will leave behind.

Nicolae

Joanna

Photography is my way to open up to different perspectives and to distance myself from everyday life. What I love the most about it is that it simply makes my dreams come true. It takes me to the places which become my favourite ones. And it gives me people who normally I would never have a chance to meet, and they become my favourite ones as well. That's why I take any opportunity to travel, practice photography skills, and do things I've never done before.

 

Let Me Italian You always provides all above, that's why Discover Budapest is my fourth experience - before that, I took part in Discover Barcelona III, Discover Sicily I and Discover Marrakech I.

Hello everybody!

I am Charalambos, or Harry for short if you like. I am 24 years old and a graduate of Journalism. I come from the hot, gorgeous and hot island of the Mediterranean, Cyprus. Did I mentioned it's hot there?

I would describe myself as social, friendly and with a particular sense of humor. I may not be a professional photographer, but I do love shooting...photographs.

To close, I have two very serious addictions: traveling and fashion.

Charalambos

I'm Maddalena, I'm 21 and come from Modena.
 
I'm studying scenography in bologna, but I want to be a director.
 
I love stories, I love to tell stories about love, beauty, sadness and sweetness.
 
I'm a melancholic romantic and I'm so exited to start this journey and let you know my Budapest.

 

Maddalena

Hello I’m Stavri, 23 year old, from Cyprus with a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Hertfordshire. The last 4 years I specifically work with Fine Art Photography focused on human figure. I deconstruct the beauty and the stereotypical human presence to a mysterious, disturbed and mythical scenery. I create scenarios and by playing with the colors, I give to the viewer the feeling of a surreal dream and environment of calmness. The summer of 2017 I’ve won the 1st prize in an Art Competition in the UK for the Radlett Arts Society which helped me continue making my photographs and developing myself. In September 2018 I will start my master degree in Art Therapy.
