I'm Stefania, 34 years old, I live and work in Italy. Photography allows me to freeze pieces of life that otherwise would probably pass unknown, forgotten. I think that everything has a hidden soul, and when I take a picture of it, a tiny part of that soul remains there, forever.

 

I participated in Discover Krakow 8.

Stefania

I'm Ada, a 20-year-old girl from Finland. At the moment I’m studying  Audiovisual Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome.
During the past few years, I have found a big passion for the photography. I’m fascinated by the beauty that I can create through the lens. I’m willing to learn more tecniques from the other photographers and gain more inspiring experiences while travelling and seeing new things. Besides photography, I’m doing music, songwriting and poetry.


I’m looking forward to partecipate in this project, sharing experiences with people who share the same passion with me!

Ada

Hi ! I am Hailie, 31 years old French girl living in Paris. Travelling and Photography are the two things I enjoy the most, so I am really excited to be part Discover Marrakech!! I can't wait to meet all the participants ! See you there!

 

I participated in Discover Krakow 9.

Pasquale

Ho partecipato a Discover Krakow 6, Discover Budapest 1 e Discover Sicily 3. Ho passione per la fotografia e scopro ogni giorno che è una disciplina trasversale nell'ambito delle conoscenze umane in vari campi della scienza, della tecnica, della tecnologia, dell'arte e della geometria, ma anche della psicologia e del costume: tutto questo merita passione, studio e approfondimento. Ecco perchè uso le occasioni possibili per assecondare questa passione che è in continuo mutamento. In fotografia non c'è un "punto di gravità".

Vanessa

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 live again this experience! I participated in Discover Krakow 9 last December.

Marta

Hello! My name is Marta, I'm 25 years old and I live and work in Galicia (Spain). I studied Computer Science, and my two great hobbies are travelling and photography. I started very recently with photography, although I've always been attracted to art. I still have not defined my tastes in photography, but at the moment I have a special interest in portrait photography, nocturnal photography and animal photography. It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and that's my main objective: that the photos speak for themselves.

I participated in Discover Budapest IV last February.

Elisabetta

My name is Chiara, I’m 25 and I’m from Rome. I’m not good at talking about me, as I’m not good at talking at all, this is why I prefer to “speak” through my pictures. I love capturing the amazing colours of nature and environment, and I’m looking forward to start this new adventure. See you in Barcelona!

 

I participated in Discover Barcelona 6 last February.

Hi! My name is Lisa, I'm from Italy and I'm 23 years old.

 

I love to travel and take pictures of what I see around me, in particular landscapes and macros. I decided to take part of this project to improve my abilities and to do something for myself in a city that I've always wanted to discover.

Lolita

Hello! I am Lolita, I am 21 years old, I am French.

 

I took a sabbatical year to travel and take the time for the photo.

 

The Discover Marrakech is perfect for adding a new trip to my list for my special year.

 

I look forward to discovering all that this trip can offer me and meeting photographers from around the world.

 

Hello! I’m Camille, a Seattlite on a trip through life. At present, that means France. I like to eat, travel, write, and comment on politics and culture.

 

Photography is a new extension of creativity for me and I’m just starting the tap into its possibilities.

 

On a normal day, I’m either the person laughing the loudest or making you do the same. I speak some passable German, a little French, and smile a lot to make up the difference. 

 

And I’m really, really interested in the psychology of color and how that plays out in photographs!
