dear BWP lovers
maybe someone would say a little creepy things happening here, but we love her and willing to dive endlessly into her mystery full works again and again. meet the great and offbeat Valeria.
Which five words would your friends use to describe you?
Shy, crazy, anxious, creative, nerd.
How would you describe your style?
I honestly don't think it's possible to describe it. It's in continue evolution and it's hugely influenced by two other passions of mine: Cinema and music.
Black and white is a constant feature, while the images can vary depending on my experiences and I think this is clearly perceivable by looking at my photos, that often appear "bipolar".
I choose photographers for these interviews because their work inspires me and gets my creative juices flowing. What gives you ideas and inspires you to create such amazing imagery?
Thank you, Bastian.
It all reduces to my love for cinema.
I watch lots of movies every week and each one of them mixes up with my ideas, creating a whole new imaginary that I try to portray with my photos.
The most relevant inspiration comes from the German Expressionism movies and from recent works like Pi, The Tree of life, Bronson, Melancholia, Antichrist etc..etc..
If someone said ‘how can I be the next ValeriaVi? What would you say?
ahahah Be a nerd
Try and read "Le Photographique" by Rosalind Krauss, watch lots of movies and face all the adversities with a smile.
