Everything around us is an array of colors, from the green grass we walk on to the blue sky above. The world we see is anything but black and white. What would our world be like if we could not see color? Colors are one of the many things that play a part in our daily lives, whether we know it or not. In fact, research has shown that colors can portray many different feelings, moods, and even thinking. No wonder photographers are fascinated by colors.
“For this 27th edition of AAP Magazine, we were looking for work that would celebrate colors. In the end, we chose twenty-five photographers (as it happens a majority of women!) from 15 different countries and 5 continents. Their color palette is diverse: bold, vibrant as well as pastel, or even monochromatic but each time their conscious choice adds to the photograph's esthetic appeal and conveys sensory pleasure.”

Series: Waiting for the Colors
I've always been fascinated by colors, clean geometries and open spaces.
My photographic projects have always evolved based on these three elements. From the almost impressionist light of Netherlands to the more intense one of Italy, passing from the nuances of the Japanese seasons to the Egyptian atmospheres. This specific collection I wanted to call “Waiting for the colors” it is a gallery of moments, sometimes waited for hours, where color is predominant and conditions the whole scene.
