Elena Raceala

For her, photography is emotion. She can't say exactly how and when the click happened, but on one of her trips to Italy in 2013, on a rainy morning, she took the first photo to which she is very attached. From that moment on a part of her lives through photography.
"I want to convey through my images the emotion of discovering the perspective of a moment, of a story without words." says Elena.
Life inspires her with either joys or difficult moments and sometimes her compositions resemble the human condition in which light and darkness dwell together. She likes to look for new places that will surprise her, but she is looking for the human presence, the usual moments, from everyday life, moments that she then exposes in a black and white vision. Each moment is unique, and she chooses those who speak to her, translating them into images. What she wants is for the emotion she felt when she took the photo to reach the viewer.
Amateur photographer from 2013, started as a travel and street photographer, then approached the "Fine Art" section. She travels, takes photos and documents every place she goes.
