INTERVIEW: LUCA RAPISARDA

We caught up with Luca, a teenager from Catania – student, model and photographer. He shares some photographs of innocence and youth with us.

“I’m a contemporary dancer and a photographer. I prefer to shoot my friends and relate images stories about them. Usually when I take pictures, I look the eyes of the person through the camera and wait (also few minutes) the perfect moment where they’re theirselves, so I can express with the light whatever I want. For my life, I hope just one thing: I’d like to be always able to interpretate realistically what the “model” and the world around him is telling me”
