Luca Curci – When you take photos, are you usually inspired by the situation or do you find inspiration in yourself?
Eleonora Vergnano – When I shoot I take inspiration from the nature surrounding us and from the models and try to draw some kind of connection between them.
LC – According to you, what makes a good photo? Which details do you focus on?
EV – When I look at a photo I focus mainly on the colors, the expression of the subject and the composition but another fundamental point for me is the message or the emotion I take to represent
LC – Is there an unrealised or unrealisable project, even a crazy one, that you would like to work on?
EV – There is a photographic project that I have in mind that I would like to create soon and it takes inspiration from symbolism in art.
LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
EV – For me, the most difficult part is the organization (especially when I shoot fashion shooting), but at the same time it is pretty fun.
LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
EV – It depends, usually I rely on fashion agencies and therefore we think a lot about the final choice of models that must be in line with the mood but it also happened to shoot with girls I chose more instinctively because inspired by some peculiarities.
LC – What do you think about the concept of this exhibition How did it inspire you?
EV – I think the concept of the exhibition was perfect for my works, I usually try to portray people, faces, bodies and especially souls.
LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
EV – I really like your vision of art and this theme in my opinion is very timely.
LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
EV – I think it is a great showcase for emerging artists, nowadays it is easier to get known through social media but to exhibit in an ancient building in the heart of Venice is something else.
LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us What do you think about our services?
EV – Of course, everything was perfectly cared for.
LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
EV – I think it is a great opportunity for all of us to get acquainted with and interact with galleries and other artists.
