On the Spot: Valentina Vortice

by Chiara Costantino
 

Valentina [V.]ORTICE. is a 20 years old student from Cagliari (Sardinia). She started shooting by chance: she adores travelling and since she was a child, because her mother did not like to take pictures during their holidays,  Valentina had to take them. At first those pictures were just souvenir photos, but then a friend of Valentina suggested her to visit her own Flickr’s account. That was a brainwave: Valentina liked the possibility many people had to show high quality pictures, even if these people were not professional photographers. She bought a reflex camera with her savings and opened her Flickr’s account. Valentina loves portraits, especially black and white ones. She pays also great attention to details and colours.  In future Valentina hopes to realize some projects.

Valentina [V.]ORTICE. è una studentessa ventenne di Cagliari. Ha iniziato a fare fotografia per caso: adora viaggiare e da quando era bambina, poichè sua madre non amava fare foto durante le loro vacanze, Valentina doveva scattarle al posto suo. All’inizio quelle erano solo foto ricordo, ma poi un’amica di Valentina le ha suggerito di visitare il suo profilo su Flickr. E’ stata una folgorazione: a Valentina è piaciuta la possibilità che molte persone avevano di esibire foto di alta qualità, anche se quelle persone non erano fotografi professionisti. Ha comprato una reflex con i suoi risparmi e aperto un proprio account su Flickr. Valentina ama i ritratti, specialmente quelli in bianco e nero. E’ anche molto attenta ai dettagli e ai colori. In futuro Valentina spera di realizzare alcuni progetti fotografici.
