Summer Edition


I participated in Discover Krakow 6, Discover Budapest 1 and Discover Sicily 3, Discover Marrakech 2 and Discover Lisbon 3.

I have a passion for photography and I discover every day that it is a transversal discipline in the field of human knowledge in various fields of science, technique, technology, art and geometry, but also psychology and costume: all this deserves passion, study and in-depth analysis.

That's why I use the possible opportunities to indulge this passion which is constantly changing. In photography there is no "point of gravity".

Hi! I'm Angela, a "polite hooligan" who loves nature, exploring and art.

I’m 27 and I’m from Gravina in Puglia (Italy).

I like to enclose an emotion in one shot and rediscover the beauty that surrounds us with long walks.


Hi! I'm Francesco from Bari, Italy.
I am a curious and motivated person, always focused on personal improvement.

I like to travel and gain new experiences, sharing them with other people.

I am a photography lover, especially landscapes. I love nature, so when I'm not working as a freelance software developer I like to go out and do some hiking.

Taking photos, tasting typical dishes, learning about different cultures are some of the things I hope to do during my next trip.

I think i can recall the time i fell in love with photography, i was maybe 7 or 8 years old. It was on Christmas Eve and my parents gave me my first camera, i was a big fan of Barbie at the time! And the camera was from Barbie, i was so excited that the rest of the evening i was just taking photos of my family. And till this day i still have the photos! Eventually, my love for Barbie disappeared but the passion for photography grew stronger. Even though, only recently i started taking it more seriously. I will be able to learn more, improve my skills and of course travel and meet other people with the same passion as me.
