Elena

Hi everyone! I'm Elena, I'm 21 years old and I live in Modena, in Italy. After high school, where I studied foreing languages, I started working while I've kept improving one of my biggest passions: photography. In fact, I've attended a photography class for two months. In future I would like to work in the photography sector. I don't like to define my photography style as I take photos of everything that catches my eyes and mind, like landscapes, people, animals, architecture. Now I'm trying to experiment with analog cameras and I have to say that I love it very much. I was searching for a new expierence and challenge so I decided to sign up for this project. I hope it will be fun and I'm looking forward to meet all of you. I participated in Discover Krakow 12.

Alessia

Laura

I'm Laura , I'm 20 from Brescia. Since I was a child I've been passionate about art: drawing, photographing, dancing. During adolescence I started to devote myself more and more to photography because I started to see and perceive the world that surrounded me as a work of art, full of perfect symmetries, games of colors, curious contrasts and so on;

I  like to travel and make new acquaintances, discover new nuances of life through the personality and experience of the people that I meet.

I participated in Discover Sicily IV.

 

Hi, I'm Cosmina - 38 years old - from Bucharest,  Romania. I am passionate about traveling,  I love exploring the world and taking lots of pictures.
I'm that type of traveler who would eat at local tavernas along with the residents,  who would love to know what their interests are,  how they live their day by day life,  what's their favourite music, their greatest dream. 
And when I get home,  I look at the pictures and remember all the pieces of advice they gave me or stories they told and how they've transformed me. This is what a picture can do: to transport you back in time to that exact moment when you discovered a place and/or yourself. I would love to be able to transmit that with my photos! My greatest dream is to live by the beach someday, on an island where there's a neverending summer.  The sun and the sea make me happy! Thank you for having me on this project - Marrakech - May 2019!

Love the colours, follow the light, paint the moment. That's almost all that photography means to me. I'm used to walk into the image before the shoot, 'cause I want to discover the "why" beside the "what". I'm also focused on the "when": the photography is an action spent in time, the time of a kiss, a fly, a dance, a simple move that reveals the inner armony of the world.
