” When I first began to experiment with sea life photography I tried shooting small invertebrates for fun with my own old dslr camera and without any professional lights or lenses. I collected the invertebrates under water and then I’ve shot them in the lab. After two or three months of failure after failure I ended up with a few good pictures, which I’ve showed to the crew. It has inspired us to buy a semi-professional camera complete with underwater housing and strobes. Thus I’ve spent the following field season trying to shoot the same creatures, but this time in their environment. It was much more difficult, and I spent another two months without any significant results. But when you’re working at something every day, you inevitably get a lot of experience. Eventually I began to get interesting photos — one or two from each dive. Now after four years of practice I get a few good shots almost every time I dive but I still have a lot of things that need to be mastered in underwater photography. And the most important thing — I love Sea.” – Alexander Semenov

Emanuela Franchini was born in Genoa, Italy and moved to London in 1999. She began to experiment with the art of self portraiture focusing on everyday life and the interaction with mundane objects in 2005. In July 2007 her passion began to pay dividends and her image entitled Cheap 70’s Porn ”, a self portrait, was used by the New York band The Strokes for the homepage of their website. In a tide of interest that ensued, she delighted in the 2008 Sony World Photography Awards selecting her image “Low Tide” across their website to advertise the photographic award. She is currently working on her ongoing self portrait project “The domestic life of electrical appliances and other stories” and also continuing the collaboration with Cristina Cocullo on a new project.
