– Hello, Elena. How would you describe this set of images?
– The first three images were taken at the Fiera di Milano/Pero exhibition centre designed by Massimiliano Fuksas, I captured parts of the building with details in a distinctive red color. All these photos have a very strong geometric component that characterizes most of my pictures.

– As a photographer, what do you find interesting about urban environments and architecture?
What attracts your visual attention?

– I am an architect and I love architecture, photography stimulates me to visually explore it and differently appreciate it. I like to photograph architectural details, especially with a strong geometry. As Vladimir Nobokov once said: “Caress the detail, the divine detail”.

– Which other photographic styles do you like besides architectural and urban photography?
– Architectural and urban photography are my main interests, I especially like to photograph the art venues, galleries and museums because I’m attracted to the design of those buildings.

– What motivates you to be busy with photography, what is your goal as a photographer?
– To always improve in technique, never stop looking at everything with curiosity and to give a personal interpretation of what I see in my surrounding.

– Do you have a ‘dream location’ where you would like to take photos? Which city would you like to visit for a photo session?
– I would like to visit New York, Tokyo and Berlin, but in every city, every place, even where I least expect it, I can find what interests and inspires me.

– What is your favorite camera?
– I work with Canon Powershot G11.

– Did you publish any photo books and where do you expose your works on internet?
– My photos are published only on Flickr.

-Thank you, Elena and all the best with your photographic work.

    Highly elegant, and well articulated compositions.

    I am sorry I missed this wonderful conceptual exhibition striving for geometry – as the title implies. I was off flickr for a couple of months….
    All my sincere congratulations to Elena!

    Meravigliosi dettagli…
