Hi everyone! It’s Emanuele, here.
I’m only a human being from “Caput Mundi”, Rome, Italy.
My “lifemotiv” is travelling, not only phisically but above all spiritually, because you can also turn all the world, but if you don’t cultivate your spirit, the most important questions…it would be like a “vacation”…
I’m here to explore this “engagement” I have for pictures and how they could tell stories, but mostly to have the opportunity to share it with other people, finding others points of view and what photography means for us.
At the moment, it’s all… See you in Lisbon!
I am Silvia and I am from the Netherlands. Photography is an important part of my life.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you.

I interest for photography begun when I was a child but it became more than a simple hobby for the last three years.

My favourite one is definitely B and W photography.

I loved photography since I found my parent's old analog camera and the best thing about film photography is possibility to make double exposure.

Now I'm trying to make portraits as much as possible, by digital and analog camera as well. I hope I learn lots of new skills from other participants, can't wait to meet you all.

Due to different difficulties I've never been able to do this and now that I can I'm gonna catch the opportunity. I don't know where this passion came from, but I've found myself one day with this huge love in my heart, even if there's a difficult relationship between me and photography.
