We fall in love with Kristina Babusci, who is a 26 years old photographer from Rome. Four years ago by chance she took a camera on and since then she has never let it go.
Photography means to you?
It is more than just a passion, it’s my way to communicate and to express myself, a need for my soul. I never think about catching the best from a model when I shoot, while I try to let her enter into my world, to transit my feelings and transport her into my spirit.
Where comes your big love for Polaroids?
I have been shooting on polaroid with 120 film less than one year, I still remember the date as it was the 31st December 2010, I just bought a lomo and started to shoot some branches of a tree. I had a blast and from there it all started.
What equipment do you use? Mainly I use Diana, Polaroid, Holga; canon 4d on ad-hoc basis.
What does it take to make a perfect picture?
A smooth and relaxed environment is the base to start with; it is basic also to get together with make-up artists and stylisst that have my way of approach and affinity, the synergy between our energies gives the best to the work and each photo can only get perfect!
Many and different subjects catches my inspiration; to mention creations from Wendy Bevan, Sarah Moon, Ellen Rogers, black&white movies from Federico Fellini, nature and its colours, places, music, life scene I watch and dreams that I have.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
in 5 years? Wow! I have no clue where I will be in the next 5 minutes! I really do not think about what will be my future as I love to live and enjoy every single moment. I can wish to Kristina to spend my life to shoot around the world, as photography is my world.
