Who are you?

I’m a 20 year old, South African born university student living in Brisbane, Australia. I love to create imagery that evokes emotion and inspires people.

 

What are you inspired by?

I find inspiration in the most authentic things of this world  -  an adventure in the mountains, the simplicity of the olden days before technology, and true human connection.

 

What was the last movie you watched?

Brooklyn, directed by John Crowley.

 

What was the last book you read?

Rumours of Another World by Philip Yancey, it deals with life’s big existential questions, what it really means to be human, and challenges the increasingly popular idea of reductionism. Great read!

 

Do you have any role model?

 I’d probably have to say both of my grandfathers. They are such honourable men who grew up in a time long before the often impatient, and disconnected age of the internet. I think much of my love for photography is due to the idea of capturing a unique moment in time that will be looked back on as I do with photographs of my ancestors.

 

What is your next creative project?

I recently purchased my first film camera - the Nikon F2! I’ve been obsessed with the idea of film for a while now and finally decided to go for it. I love that you don’t see the image instantly as we do today with cameras on our smartphones. It’s a single frame, a snapshot in time, and far more meaningful than spending hours looking through a viewfinder, shooting a hundred images and discarding the ones you don’t want. You’re forced to make every exposure count. So I think it will make me a more thoughtful photographer. Film is such a beautiful and unique medium of storytelling, I would love to be a part of keeping it alive.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

As a photographer, I love the simplicity above all else. It’s easy to use, and displays my images beautifully.

Who are you?

I’m a photographer based in Malmö, Sweden. I’m currently studying Commercial and Editorial photography at Gamleby School of Photography. 

 

What are you inspired by?

It’s a tricky question. Trying to examine your own work is always hard. But besides the inspiration from other photographers work, I find a lot of inspiration in my daily life, when meeting people and observing my surroundings. 

 

What was the last movie you watched?

The Danish Girl

 

What was the last book you read?

History, Elsa Morante

 

Do you have any role model?

Too many to mention here

 

What is your next creative project?

Right now I work with my final school project, a collaboration with a bakery, which will hopefully turn out to be a book.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

The simplicity in creating a website  and still have the possibility to make it personal. I don’t have the knowledge or interest to build a website from scratch.

Who are you?

I am a freelance Wardrobe Stylist - I have worked in fashion for many years and several different avenues. I have been a buyer for a boutique, all the way to interning at a PR company for New York Fashion Week. Throughout it all I have always had a passion and an “eye” for style.

 

What are you inspired by?

My inspirations come from all aspects of my life, as cliché as that may sound. I would have to say my top 3 are: Music, Art & Humour.

 

What was the last movie you watched?

The last movie I watched was “Heathers"

 

What was the last book you read?

The last book I read was The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death.

 

Do you have any role model?

I find the question of a “role model” very difficult to answer, I have plenty of them! Ranging from Katie Grand to Buddha - it is nearly impossible for me to decide. I would have to say my ultimate role model is anyone who wears what they want, says what they want or is who they want to be because it makes them feel amazing.

 

What is your next creative project?

My next creative project is again not an easy one to answer! I have several upcoming projects that will require creativity! I am planning to move to NYC, find an agency and, of course, working on more shoots! I am always wanting to work on my art, always wanting to shoot, always wanting to make beautiful work.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

What I love about Portfoliobox is the control I have over my site. I can make it as minimalistic or as maximalist as I want, I can decide almost every aspect to the minute detail, which for a control freak, I found ideal! The best part however has been all of the great support from the Portfoliobox community and staff. Anytime I have a question or concern I have had a prompt and sincere answer and nothing can compare to that.

Who are you?

During my thirty years living in Italy my artwork has definitely been shaped by observing the world around me from the perspective of “outsider”. I have realized that sometimes even an absence or something missing forces us to see things more clearly. I consider myself an artist who “uses” photography to explore the complex relationship between seeing and truth. 

 

What are you inspired by?

Relationships, juxtapositions, coincidence & light

 

What was the last movie you watched?

The Lesson (Urok) by Kristina Grozeva & Petar Valchanov 

 

What was the last book you read?

La collezione come forma d’arte by Elio Grazioli

 

Do you have any role model?

Man Ray, Tina Modotti, Bruno Munari, Antonia Campi

 

What is your next creative project?

Artists have always gathered and surrounded themselves with objects that inspire them, even though those objects may not appear as such in the artist’s visual work. I am currently in the conceptual stage for a series that revolves around the connection between my visual work and my collection of mid-century Italian ceramics.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox is for image-makers. It’s design is simple and elegant and the final website is fast, functional and professional. Portfoliobox gives me complete control over how I present myself and it has supplied me with all the tools to be my own best curator.

Who are you?

I am in Italian born fine-art and documentary photographer, I focus on the Mediterranean identity from a cultural and social angle.

 

What are you inspired by?

Literature mainly, I am inspired by authors that mark their prose with a strong visual component.

 

What was the last movie you watched?

“007 Licence to kill”. Eheh, maybe not too much intellectual, but tasty movie indeed.

 

What was the last book you read?

 Chance by Joseph Conrad, a grand book by a classic author.

 

Do you have any role model?

I guess I don’t have any specific role model, but if I had any, it would be a bizarre blend between Sean Connery as 007 and my grandfather, a simple yet honest man.

 

What is your next creative project?

My next project is my forthcoming book: ITALIANA. It is the outcome of a two years’ journey in my home country, it is about ancestral and post modern Italy. A crowdfunding page is active in March, please, have a look.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox radically changed my approach to my website, for good! My previous website was tricky to update, now in a couple of clicks I can add my new work and share it. I find it great!
