olá! hoje estou em pulgas, porque tenho uma surpresa para vocês! é o nosso primeiro giveaway! hoje temos connosco uma a Kristy, muito simpática! acredito que a maioria já conheça o seu trabalho, mas eu quero partilhar com vocês alguns pormenores inspiradores que eu desconhecia sobre Kristy e o seu trabalho. temos então uma pequena entrevista! se quiserem explorar mais os cantinhos de Kristy cliquem nos links que coloquei em cima.

so let´s start...

When did your passion about photography start?

I developed a passion for photography walking the hallways of my high school with a Canon 35mm. I snapped countless photos for the yearbook and spent hours experimenting in the dark room.

Why the name life n reflection?

It's a reminder to look at our lives in reflection. Focusing on the simple things of life allows us to savor small pleasures: a kind face, a soft ray of light, a knowing glance, the budding of a tree, the song of a cheerful bird, and a loving embrace. Through each moment savored you can find gifts of inspiration and serenity.

What inspires you in your photography & textures is:

I am inspired by aging structures, thunderstorms, letters from the past, fields of rolled hay, rusting tractors, pattern of perfection imprinted on leaves, everyday items of yesteryear, and the wild tangling branches of old oak trees.

The create process is as important to me as the finished product. Burlap, aged postcards, pages torn from books, and stamped ink are a few of my favorite things to create with.

Define your textures in three words.

    Que dose de bom gosto, que calma para aguardar pelo momento certo com luz, sombras a harmonizar cada ambiente... O silêncio de cada foto transmite muito... ao olhar para estas obras, entramos num mundo especial, onde somos invadidos por sons imaginàrios que tudo condizem com o ambiente preparado pela artista.
    Cada foto é para mim uma viagem... :)
