Self Exploration with Melania Brescia
WildSpice got to chat with 21 year old Spanish photographer, Melania Bresica. Take a walk into her world and hear what she has to say about art, self-expression and being alone.
WS: Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your journey as a photographer?
MB: I started when I was 15 or 16 years old, since the beginning my goal has been to just feel better myself, I mean, to express myself when I can't do it with words or any other way. Little by little I started having more ideas apart of what was happening in my life, which was always the base for my work. It still costs me a lot to work if I have nothing to say, no matter how many ideas I have.
WS: If you had to describe your work in three words, what would they be?
MB: Light, emotional and dreamy.
WS: Self-portraits are such an intimate thing...has your photography helped you learn more about yourself, physically and emotionally?
MB: Yes, it kinda helps me explore myself, more emotionally than physically. I care more about what I'm trying to express. Photography is just a way to say what I can't say any other way and that's something that my work with self-portraits has taught me, every bad thing has a beautiful part. Mine is photography.
WS: In 10 words or less, when do you feel your wildest?
