FEELING THE BEAUTY

Story and Photography by

AMBRA CROCIANI

As a photographer my aim is to create a visual memory able to express beauty as I perceive it through my lens. While working, I immediately realize when I take a picture I am happy with, it’s not easy to explain by words, it is more like an emotion, where everything is able to hold on its own.

I believe beauty is given by its association with other things such as a human body in an intimate and natural surrounding. Just like a soft intruder, water is almost always present in my work. A natural element, colourless, shapeless and ancient. Water runs through and around us, silent and soft it shapes the background of life.

When trying to imagine Steam in a picture I immediately thought about the texture of skin, combined with water drops, a soft greenish palette able to evoke a moment in time a place in the world that could be both somewhere and nowhere.

When photographing a body, I try to focus on every single part of it except for the face. I like to contemplate on the beauty and strangeness of small portions, seeking that perfect moment where everything fi ts. The beauty of all this is that there isn’t any control on it or fi xed rule, this is how photography works for me.

Water runs through and around us, silent and so it shapes the background of life.
