If the name *Cristina Altieri* doesn’t ring a bell then you should probably get to know the name now. Aside from the fact that she shoots mainly on analogue cameras, Cristina also has this amazing series that plays with light and shadows using the human body as sort of a backdrop. Her photographs always leave something out of the frame like the faces since she believes that those parts of the body are intimate and that makes them all the more real.
