My name is Alessandra Gatti and I am 20 years old. I live in Treviso but studying in Verona, in the Veneto region, north-east of Italy.
I have never studied photography in my life. I didn't even know what was a Light Meter before somebody once told me. But there's something inside of me, and always has been, that pushes me to block some simple things in everyday life and give them back through pictures. I started taking photographs with a little compact digital camera, already using manual controls; then I got my first DLSR camera, a Nikon D3100 that I still have and use. Suddenly, almost three years ago, I felt like going back to analog photography and a whole world of possibilities and wonders jumped into my hands. I changed a lot of different cameras, from lomography to analog DLSR, but also many disposable cameras, either expired and not. I am always experimenting new devices and films.
