My name is Lucia and I’m an Italian photographer, I started taking pictures when there were using 36mm films and I was used to discover them only when the prints were ready.
I still remember the excitement of seeing what I had photographed, the feeling of physically holding the photo, of having that moment fixed forever in time.
Today with digital, things have changed, everything is available right now, but isn’t something missing?
I work as a portrait photographer, I am trained to use photoshop and retouch all my photos so that the people i shoot look as perfect as possible. But when I observe deeper at fashion pictures, or at social media’s ones, I find that all those faces in the end all have the same skin grain, almost the same shades, so much post-edited that basically they all look a bit like Barbie faces.
This made me think about our individuality and our uniqueness. I travelled the back in time, looking at the photos of my parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, observices those beautiful unique faces, telling me their stories that I can still recognise exactly as they were back in my memory.
Yes, holding those printed photos in my hands is my way of traveling through time, as if they were with me forever. It’s pure emotion, it is a magical moment of happiness.
I connected to all this when I discovered the beautiful project created by the Italian photographer Settimio Benedusi “Ricordi Stampati”.
A return to the origins of photography , to prints, paper, ink, a way to offer an eternal heirloom memory.
I am therefore proud to be part of this group of exceptional photographers and bring this unique project to Brussels.
It’s about receiving a beautiful printed photo.
Are you ready to have a photo of you, your loved ones, your children, your pets, to have an eternal memory printed for you and for those to come?
I don’t send digital files, only prints, in different formats.
What you pay for is not so much the portrait that is made of you but the print you take away.
Everything is tailored made on the spot, so we ask you to be patient and possibly wait. In return, I assure you that you will have something truly unique.
