TERESA CARNUCCIO


“Kintsugi - riparare con l’oro” is a self-portrait project. It is

about celebrating the battles the soul has come through, accepting and

honoring the scars that testify to how it has been shattered and has

come together as more complete and precious.

The title is borrowed from the ancient Japanese technique of repairing

porcelain vessels accentuating the cracks with gold instead of

concealing them.

Gold foil is applied by hand at the end of the printing process.

“Kintsugi” is part of a wider ongoing project on rebirth called

“Rinascimenti Privati”, that could be translated as “Private

Renaissances”. In Italian Rinascimento means both “rebirth” and the

Renaissance, an era that witnessed the flourishing of the arts and

intellectual activities after the Middle Ages.

JAN

OSPIYAN


How long have you been drawing for?

A - Just a few months

Q - Where are you from and how old are you?

A - I’m from Venice, Italy, 32

Kind of old to start something like that, I know..

Q - What inspires you? Your works are very

visually striking.

A - Sometimes I get ideas from my dreams, and

more generally I try to express states of mind.

I’ve always been attracted by nature and I’m often

inspired by plants, flowers, animals. Art has also

a strong influence on my work, ever since my

childhood I’ve been fascinated by great surrealist

painters (Frida Kahlo, Remedios Varo and

others), later I developed a taste for Art Nouveau

and early 20th century illustration (Herouard,

Barbier, Rackham). I’m also very attracted to Japanese

culture,Its traditional art, folklore, myths

and the pop contemporary aspect all intrigue me.


Q - Interesting! So why did it take this long

to follow up with your passion?

A - Basically I was feeling very insecure,

and tried to pursue my artistic aspirations

through other forms of expression. This

made me very unhappy. As a part of my

struggle with mental illness (I started suffering

from depression at 13, some doctors say

it’s bipolar disorder, others prefer different

labels) I decided it was time to try the real

thing, stop hiding and break a pattern.

Q - Other forms of expression? You have a

very beautiful story here.

A - In the meanwhile I also work as a translator

(novels and other fiction), but that’s just because I

need to eat...And working from home is the only

thing I can manage due to social phobia and the rest.

It seems to me more like a big mess.

Q - You’re such a beautiful soul, So does art make

you enough money now? Or is it strictly for your

satisfaction?

A - Well, I’ve only just started, so the thought of

making money with art seems a bit preposterous...

I hope that maybe, in the future, if I can get good

enough and have some exposure I’ll be able to make

it a source of income. But mostly I hope it will get

me to meet people (which is already happening),

and build some confidence to get out in the world

and be in control of my life. And maybe make someone

happy with my work in the while.

A - I studied costume and then started

working as a couturiere/corset maker/milliner,

but my complete lack of skills as an

entrepreneur made it really hard to make a

living out of it. I was all on my own trying

to do the work of like ten people... I ended

up hating it all and finally quitting. It was

liberating, but more like euthanasia than

like opening a cage. Two years later I found

the strength to try and do something I liked,

in the hope others may find it interesting.

Q - Thank you for sitting with us

Q -Can you kindly tell us a bit about yourself,what

inspires you and how long you’ve

been at it?

A - I’m from Laos. Was born in

Vientiane and then I grew up and finish

school in Hong Kong. I was very inspired

by the beauty of different culture and I just

started to paint in oil since 2004. And

in 2010 I took interest in figurative. The

Japanese culture of geisha really inspired

me with their design and different meanings

of patterns and embroidery in their

kimonos.

Q - Do you do this professionally or as a

hobby?

A - I do it professionally with the art

gallery in Hong Kong Asia Fine Arts and

now I move to Ontario Canada and working

on some new collections that I will be

presenting to some galleries in Toronto.


ERKAN BARIS

A - I finished the 3 years photography

each time,i refuse to do the same

style of images.

Q- Where Are You From?

came to France when i was a child

make special photos to support you

Q - Well like to know your location, how long

you’ve been a photographer

Q - And lastly this images, explain how you created

them

A - Thank you for the opportunity! Well, I’m

Nigerian born, but I was raised in Baltimore

Maryland. Next week Wednesday will be my third

year doing photography. The pictures are long

exposure shots that I’ve become accustomed to

creating lately. I’ve really enjoyed creating a lot

of cool images through light writing. That one in

particular I wanted to have a more joyful feel to

how the model would usually pose.

Q - We’ve been through your page and there’s a

definite progession with this technique, so you use

a slow shutter speed around your model?

A - Yes, thank you! I usually use a small mini

flashlight to trace around the models. I have

everything set to make sure the model is as still

as possible per each shot, as too much movement

blurs the details. I set the camera to focus on them

prior to cutting the lights as i painting around

them with the flashlight. It’s a pretty lengthy

process between each shot, but the results are very

much worth it

A - A lot of times, I’m not always too sure what

may come out once the camera processes the images.

The final product comes as a surprise to me

at the end. Afterwards, all I do is color correct a

slight bit in lightroom and the image is done.

Q - Beautiful! One more thing, How do you use a

flashlight and there is no trace of you in the photograph

all blurred up or your hand all blurring?

A - I usually have my shutter speed at about 25

seconds, the aperture around f14 and up, and

my iso at 100. Because I set the camera to only

capture any little amount of light, my movements

around the model never appear in the photo.

The flashlight is the only thing the camera picks

up while I paint, so that gives me the freedom to

move around as much as I want without being

seen at all.

Q - Congratulations on making it to the magazine

Q - HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SHOOTING?

AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM?

A - I’m from a Little Rock, AR and I’ve been shooting

since around february 2016

Q - WHAT CHALLENGES DO YOU FACE?

A - The challenges i face as a photographer are

trying to learn more and grow as an artist every

day. I try to push myself to see the world from many

different perspectives.

Q - WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

A - I’m mostly inspired by other artists and people


ZBIGNIEW SUJAK


Q - What’s your real name

A - I’m Federica Nardese, based in Milan (Italy),

shooting Digital from 2010

Q - So you are solely a professional photographer?

No other business or sources of income?

A - I’m actually going pro this year after some

years as hobbist photographer. My other source of

income is from a part time job in the HR field but

I gradually understood I really needed to pursue

my teen days dream to become a photographer

and here I am now.

Q - What are the challenges you face as a photographer

in italia?

A - The biggest challenge I’m facing at the moment

is doing marketing and communication

properly to approch and sale to my target demographic

because in Italy there are a lot of great

photographers and it’s necessary to work with

“attitude” to reach your goals. But I’m surely doing

it with absolute joy and love for the craft and my

amazing client’s.

Q - That’s very true... Lots of photographers in

Italy but your work definitely stands out, Tell us...

What inspires your style of photography?

A - Thanks, I’m inspired by semplicity and beauty.

I need to see something beautiful in my pics but

beauty alone is not so interesting to me. I look for

connection with my models or clients and that

allows our personalities to melt together in the

final shot. So I work custom made to be able to

get that connection before, during and after the

shooting. I’m inspired by painters like Mucha and

the pre-raphaelite and by other contemporary

photographers like Paolo Roversi, Sue Bryce and

Brooke Shaden for fine art.

Q - Beautifully said, I think that there’s a fine line

between inspiration and copying, But you can’t

over emphasize the fact that we all need a source

to drink from and that in itself isn’t a thing to be

ashamed of, There’s really nothing new under the

sun and no style of photography can never be

100% original, wouldn’t you agree?

A - Absolutely!! I totally agree.

Q - So my friend Federica, what made you pick up

a camera?

A - I pick up my camera because I feel the urge to

be creative. I love the making of the shooting, the

research of materials, dresses, make up and proms

before. The planning of a shooting together with

the client (I mainly work with private clients at the

moment) makes it memorable for them.

Q - Having a lot of photographers in your region,

how do you intend to stand out and be heard?

How do you intend to be recognized in this sea of

photographers?

A - I want to stand out by giving a quality service

planned with love and passion. That trully makes

a difference because it’s a service to the client. it’s

not about me really but it’s what I can do for make

them feel at their most beautiful for One day that

is going to become a legacy in their prints. Every

woman deserves that magical day sometimes and

that’s the experience I’d love to provide them with

my portraiture.

A - But I’m realizing that I’m desperately trying

not to uniform my style or copy. It’s so easy these

days to see pictures there are copies of copies of

copies both in their poetics and in their post production.

I’m really scared of running the risk not

to be “me” in my work so I mainly get inspiration

from the pictorial world to elaborate my ideas and

I look at the work of other photographers only to

enjoy myself.

THE PINK FLOWER SERIES

I came across the beautiful Mide on Instagram

and I couldn’t help but notice the scar

she had on her breast. I buzzed her and the

moment I realized it was an escape cancer

lump related story I was very eager to shoot

her.

Mide used to be ashamed of her scars but is

now very proud and fully aware that scars tell

a story of how strong you are and the things

you conquered.

I called the only makeup artist I knew that

could pull off this idea I had with the pink

flowers @chocolate_faces_artistry and we

discussed it and the rest is the photograph

you can now see.

I dedicate this series to young beautiful ladies

who have escaped the grip of breast cancer.

There is nothing to be ashamed of, you are a

winner!
