Hi, my name is Anna and I'm 20.

Photography helped me to express myself in the best way possible, it makes me feel ready to see the world and it keeps me openminded wherever I go.

I find really difficult to write this few lines because I don't know what to say but "my photographs talk more about me than myself".

I've partiecipated in Discover Barcelona 1.

I've newly discovered my passion about photography and I love the process of learning. I take pictures of anything I find interesting. I love to travel, nature, sports and music.

I'm really excited about this event in Krakow and hope to learn new things about photography, meet new people and widen my horizon.

I'm not good with words and to me, to take good photos it isn't enough just to see the best moment of things, you also need to know how to put the feelings you have for it into the camera. It's the way I try to explain myself and what I feel about life.

I've participated in Discover Barcelona 6 and Discover Krakow 11.

Alessio

Alessio -22 years old
My passion for photography started in my hometown, Verona, about 4 years ago.
I felt the need to find a way to tell a story, to show what there’s out there. And what could be better than using a picture? To freeze a moment, to capture the everyday life? 
I consider photography as an hobby after my first job as an aircraft engineer.
I’m actually into street and nature photography. But my goal for the 2019 is to achieve the ability for portrait photos. 
I love travelling and can’t wait to explore Budapest with this group and start this new adventure.
Looking forward to meet you all and spend great time together there:)  

 

Paolo

Hi! My name is Paolo and I’m 21 years old.                                                                                                                                

I study Photography at Academy of Fine Arts in Brescia, Italy. I love travelling, cinema, books and art.       

I’d like to work as fashion photographer or reporter. I’m glad to join “Discover Budapest” this year because it’s a great opportunity to visit the city, take photos and meet you all.

See you soon!

Federica

Federica was born in Acquapendente.

Since she was a child she has been attracted by nature and animals, and she has approached life and photography following her instinct.

This characteristic allows her to make every detail unique.

Her works represent the expression of her being and communicate the desire to reflect what is in her heart into the eyes of the observers.

Hi, my name is Federica, I am 20 years old and I came from Brescia, a city in Lombardy (Italy).

I study photography at LABA, Brescia’s Academy of Fine Arts. I began to love photography thanks to my mother who transmitted it to me since I was very young. Now photography helps me to express myself and the way I see the world.

I love traveling and discovering new places and cultures. I hope that my passion can become my job. I can’t wait to visit Budapest and to participate in this experience.

Federica

Roberta

I like watching the world with the filter of my words of my emotions and with the image of my photos!

I am Roberta, I am 29 years old and I live in Milan, my city of primary inspiration. I love traveling and anywhere I bring smartphone and camera pen paper.

It's the first time that I participate in the project and I can not wait to share my emotions and my photos with you! Thank you so much for the opportunity!

Carmela

My name is Carmela, I am 33 years old, I was born in Puglia but now I live in Milan with Bologna in my heart.

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.

Hello from Russia! My name is Marina, I love film photography. I'm a hobby photographer. I like history of film developing, and I always try to shoot something. My first camera was Zenit EM. Since then it's been a few years and cameras won't fit on the shelf (but it's a very small shelf). The film is intriguing, because the result is not always predictable. Always wonder what happens in the end.

Glad to have been invited to participate in the event. I think this is a great opportunity to improve your skills in the company of interesting people. 

I've participated in Discover Barcelona 5.

Marina

Hi! My name is Laura and I’m a proud Sicilian soul of 21 years studying medicine in Padova. I started taking pictures when I was very young, but it became a true passion only few years ago, when my father gave me his reflex. What I love the most about photography is the possibility to catch a moment that will never repeat itself, and the power that images can have to tell a story: for these reasons, my favourite topics are street photography and portrait photography. I find a lot of inspiration in the places I visit, so I’m looking forward to seeing what Budapest has in store for me.

Laura

Francesca

Hi, I'm Francesca from Italy. I'm 18 and I study at an Art High School.

I've always been fascinated by photography and I see Discover Budapest as an opportunity to improve and learn lots of things, but most importantly to grow up

Annarosa

My name is Annarosa, Anna for my friends. If I check my identity card I realize I am 41 but I feel the same energy and enthusiasm as when I was 25. I've been part also of Discover Barcelona 2, Discover Sicily 2 and Discover Marrakech 1. My greatest passion is travelling: I always have a new destination in my mind, either seaside or big cities, I start getting excited since I am preparing my suitcase! I am fond of photography because I believe it is the most direct way to communicate my feelings and the emotions I get from the places I visit: I especially like landscapes both urban and natural, astrophotography and b/w shootings. As Giovanni Gastel said "I have always thought that Poetry and Photography have several things in common".

Silvia

Hi! I am Silvia from Como!

I've partecipated in Discover Barcelona 1,Discover Sicily 2 Discover Krakow 9, Discover Marrakech 1 and  Discover Lisbon 1. 

Looking forward to start this new experience.

Simone

I am Simone, I'm 24 and I live near Milan. I'm passionate about videomaking, photography, editing and everything related to communication through images, colours and light.
 
When I look at things I like to think about the relations between the single parts within the whole, and how the whole itself reflects on the details.
 
I want to tell a story.

 

Martina

My name is Martina, born and raised in Bratislava - Slovakia. For me the photography is my way how I can relax - Its my passion and hobby.

I love nature photography, landscapes, macro and animals. During my free time I love books, comic books and traveling.
