Cristiana

Hello, I'm Cristiana, from Palermo.

I love photography for one simple reason: it manages to make eternal a moment that will never return. For me, photography is not simply a visual representation that is an end in itself, but a powerful media through which you can communicate and transmit messages of a certain importance to those who will observe your work. I don't dedicate myself to a specific photographic genre, but I prefer to capture everything that attracts my attention.

The photographers who most influenced my way of shooting were certainly those of National Geographic.
