The ones with my children.
How do you get your children to model so well? Bribes? Hehe
They think it is normal to pose, poor little children, because they always did i

No, I am totally self-taught. I read a lot of tutorials, magazines, see a lot of photos and try to learn by everything I see.

My favourite pieces of your work are I need a recharge, Xmas Twilight, Love sucks and gelato di nuvola . What photographs are you most proud of?
The ones with my children.

How do you get your children to model so well? Bribes? Hehe
They think it is normal to pose, poor little children, because they always did it since they were born, I'm joking, they are great models but I try to make it a play and don't annoy them.


How old are both your children?
5 the girl, 3 the boy

Which piece took you the longest amount of time to produce?
A spring gift, the daisy wasn't really collaborative. And also "catch me if you can": really A LOT of attempts.
:thumb117159119:


You have been a member of deviant art for a little over a year and you are already very popular with over 170,000 page views. How do you find the time to produce 126 photographs along with looking after two small children in such a small space of time?
During the week end, I also work, you know? I'm ophthalmologist and this is what I do to live. I take photos only as a hobby.



Do you work certain hours each day or only when you are inspired to work?
Only when I am inspired

Where do you do your work?
Mostly at home, with everyday things.

Why is your work so conceptual?
Because I am a working mum without spare time and no possibility to get models or to travel so I have to work with the things that I find around me.

Does any of your work have a deeper meaning?
My style is intentionally light and positive because this is what I search and need when I take photos.

Just a few more light hearted questions –
Favourite colour? white
Favourite Music? punk rock!
Favourite actor/actress? Robert De Niro

Thank again Mary!

It's a pleasure and sorry for the really bad english.
Mary
