lucia izco

Lucia Izco is a graphic designer and art director from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Although she doesn’t consider herself a professional photographer, in her free time she tries to study and deepen her knowledge of photography by doing editorials and experimenting with graphic resources, lights, models and textures.

 

How did the idea of the series come about?

 

Playing, it was an improvisation with two models and a vintage clothing closet. We were reading an Alfosina Storni’s poem, and we moved into her erotic and feminine world but at the same time naive and nostalgic.

 

Can we photograph the female body differently in a more powerful way?

 

Yes, I believe that the body and the female gender are powerful by themselves, multifaceted. It’s about finding another point of view, not just the objectification of women.

 

What inspires you and how would you define beauty?

 

I’m inspired by creative people. I am also inspired by people who know how to break prejudices. I don’t like to defining ‘beauty’, it is so subjective! For me, crying and being nostalgic are beautiful.

 

Film or digital?

 

Digital.

 

What makes you happy?

 

Letting things flow in life, and take them as they come! That makes me happy.
