Stefania Rosini  

... from Tuscany to catch the atmosphere of LA. I’ve loved photography since I was 8, when I saw my cousin at work, printing and cleaning some pictures. It was a magic moment that made something click inside me and tied me to the medium and the world that it can create. I got my first camera at 13, a Canon Junior. From that day on I‘ve used a lens to look at my family and my friends: it’s something between me and the world around but it helps me pay attention to things in a deeper way, you are involved in a scene but you are also a witness, you are part of the world but you are invisible too. The moment in a person’s life, be it a famous singer or someone I met in a bar, that is stolen by the camera is something I like hanging on to. Besides photography, my great passion is rock music and I have a Pearl Jam tattoo to prove it. I take pictures of everything, from landascapes to portrait, but I feel completely alive when I shoot concerts. I have just a few seconds to snap, and I often have to deal with adverse lighting to capture atmosphere, music, faces and emotions. This gets my adrenaline going. To this day, I haven’t totally abandoned film. Black and white, goes without saying. Stefania Rosini was born January 1st 1975 in a small Tuscan town near Grosseto, Montepescali.
