Photography has always been my passion, and two years ago I decided to chase my dream about photography and learn in a more professional way what I was doing as an amateur photographer. Catching a glimpse, a gesture, and the perfect moment are my interests in portraits, human behavior and documentary photography.
Throughout my degree course I have learned how to control the camera and how to use it to express my feelings.
I have been living in London for four years and the distance between my family and me led me decide to have them in my pictures for the 'Staged Narrative' module. This project is about absence, discomfort, the decisions that a family member takes, and how that decision inevitably reflects onto the whole family. Starting from old pictures of my childhood, I created new memories. The project's title is "The Painting is Me", inspired by a difficult situation between my father and me.
