How did the idea for the series come about?

 

I found Constanza on Instagram and saw a little bit of her previous work so I asked her if she wanted to shoot with me. She agreed so we just did it!

 

How did your shoot go?

 

The shoot went very well, we went to her apartment in a beautiful neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. It was cloudy that day so the light was very nice and had a very soft ambient.

 

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

 

Yes, I think so. Pictures allow you to to create a world through the intensity of the picture, I think you can show women’s power in every shoot.

 

What inspires you?

 

I feel very inspired by other photographers, I love to see other things, I also feel inspired by the place, the light, the beauty, the model’s attitude and music.

 

How would you define beauty?

 

I think it is very subjective, you can find beauty anywhere, everything that gives you pleasure.

 

Film or digital?

 

Film!

 

What makes you happy?

 

I think travelling and seeing new places are the things that makes me happy the most.

 

What’s next for you?

 

I don’t know yet, for now I’ll try to finish my degree and keep on taking pictures.
