Personal Project _ 2017 Series

These photographs are part of the 2017 series of my Personal
Project. This project is a playground in which I use ordinary object
in order to create images which tell different stories. My aim is to
look at things from a different perspective.

Serena Carminati is a still life photographer based in Genoa, Italy. While living in the UK for several years, she gained her BA Hons. in Graphic Design at Kingston University, after having studied photography on a BTEC National Diploma, at Brighton and Hove City College. Her approach to still life and food photography is often minimalistic, clean and elegant. Serena uses light, composition and colours to emphasise the natural beauty of the subject and convey emotions, in order to create simple but iconic images of ordinary objects. Her still life photography works won several important awards
