5 Questions on Analogue Photography with Raffaella Quaranta

In this new ongoing series “5 Questions on Analogue Photography with…” we send out the same set of questions to photographers. This time, Raffaella Quaranta answered these and sent along a selection of her work.

Name: Raffaella Quaranta
Occupation: photographer
Country: Italy/Belgium

1. Tell us something about yourself.
Raffaella was born 27 years ago from a blondie Belgian mother and a father with the typical Italian traits: this mix is visible in her as much as in her photographs – warmer and more colorful the photos I took at concerts, colder and dreamy those introspective.

2. Why do you still shoot analogue?
The camera is definitely an extension of me, helps me to express what I see and what I want to show or tell to others. Analogue photography is the way that make me feel complete.

3. What photographic equipment do you usually have in your bag?
All I need is a pinhole camera made of plastic, with the most minimal lens.

4. Share a trick of yours that will always result to a great photo.
I love photos shot with the pinhole camera, thanks to his long exposure times. Every image you shot is always a mystery, for example, you never know in advance if the road you are shooting will be full of people or it will remain empty. I think the pinhole can capture the unexpected, but anyway gives you a true image of reality.

5. Which photographers influence your work?
Photography is art in the images of Sarah Moon, Diane Arbus, and Erwin Olaf.
