Ciao,

Sono Massimiliano, mi piace fotografare edifici, in particolare mi interessa l'archeologia industriale

Georg

My name is Georg and I am from Austria. I work as a lawyer in an IT company. In my free-time - especially while travelling I enjoy photography. I'm interested in color, light, beautiful sceneries and people. Most of the time I take pictures of my family, friends and random people and objects. Recently, I did more street and landscape photography. I get my inspiration from every-day things or situations, documenting the aesthetic aspects in my environment. Most photos were shot with my digital Fuji cameras but some were taken on a Kiev 60, currently my favorite medium format film camera. I've started shooting analog recently because it keeps me in the moment and I spend less time focusing on a screen and worrying about details. However, I appreciate the convenience of modern digital cameras and the possibility to share images instantaneously. Discover Krakow is my first trip.

Alessandra nasce ad Ischia nel 1993. Dopo gli studi classici frequenta la facoltà di Architettura dell’università Federico II di Napoli. E‘ da sempre stata circondata e affascinata dall’arte nelle sue diverse forme, e dal 2009 si appassiona alla fotografia, iniziando a frequentare numerosi corsi per apprendere le nozioni, le tecniche e le infinite possibilità di creazione artistica. Questa passione si rinforza, così come la volontà di andare oltre la visione classica della fotografia, in un deciso rifuggire da tutto ciò che nell’immaginario collettivo risulta ordinario. Ad oggi ha alle spalle 9 mostre fotografiche, tra collettive e personali.
