Marta Bevacqua is a Roman photographer who is divided between Italy and abroad: she started shooting at the age of seventeen and since then she hasn’t stopped, moving to Paris to work. Her photos always manage to surprise thanks to the great creativity of her sets, spontaneity models’ poses and emotions that arose in the viewer. The beauty is celebrated in all its elegance and delicacy going to tell short visual stories in an ethereal way.
Us at Collater.al have asked Marta a few questions about her and her work:
If you had to tell who you are through an image, which one would you choose?
I would choose a photo I took a few years ago, entitled “Solitude”: everything in this image represents me one hundred percent such as the pose, the atmosphere, the color.
Are there books, movies or songs that inspire your work?
Sure! For example, Stranger Things is one of the most inspiring Netflix’s series, along with music by Agnes Obel and Moby. As for the books, I could make a list, but it would be too long.
What kind of femininity do you want to communicate with your images?
Certainly a particular kind of femininity, full of flaws.
Is there a dream or a project that you would like to achieve in the future?
Yes, absolutely, and more than one; I would really like to make a project by traveling to distant places.
How important was your experience outside of Italy? What advice would you give to emerging talents?
It was fundamental, because, in addition to learning on the working level, it was also very personal training and then helped me on a professional level. Advice? Do not be afraid and, even if the road never ends, continue and do not give up, but having a lot of patience.
