It’s been almost a year since I last wrote on this blog, I’m clearly not getting any better at keeping it updated.
I can’t believe how rubbish I’ve been at keeping this blog updated. Since my last post in June 2012 (!!!) so many things have happened that I’m struggling to know where to start….I feel like I’ve been talking way too much already about what I’m just about to say, but here you go:
I was extremely lucky to have my work online noticed by an Italian curator working in France who commissioned me a new series of photographs for my first solo exhibition.
Recently I had the opportunity to fulfill a little photographic dream of mine: taking pictures of identical twins.
I’ve always been fascinated by people and people watching has been a favourite pastime of mine since I can remember.
On the other hand, I’m a tad socially awkward and I find quite hard to approach people who I don’t know.
Recently I’ve finally (partly) overcome my awkwardness in approaching strangers and I’ve started asking more and more people on the street if I can take their picture.
During my stay in Saint Petersburg, I spent many hours at the Russian museum and it was an incredible experience.
I felt deeply inspired by Russian art, I was totally in awe and I felt compelled to take several pictures of most of the large paintings of the collection.
While I was shooting picture after picture, I kept framing little details out of big canvases, distorting them and using shallow depth of field to isolate them from the bigger picture. I’m not sure why I did it, but it was quite an interesting experiment.
It’s been a while since I shot my first fashion test here in London (it was on the 9th of April) and I’ve finally decided to write about it.
