Flavia Catena says about her :
“I am an Italian freelance photographer living in the UK.
I was born in the beautiful island of Sicily a “few” years ago. When I was an teenager, and then as soon as I moved to Rome where I studied Italian literature and Journalism, what I always desired was to be a writer, to tell stories of people. And for a number of years my creativity was focused on that.
Then, after I graduated, I moved to Milan. In that period of my life I started searching for something new, for a new inspiration, and there I discovered my passion for photography (that I had always admired and loved anyway). So I started attending photography courses, and to think that there was another way to express my feelings and my idea of life.
I took the decision to study photo-journalism, and from that day on – three years ago now – I never stopped taking photos and dreaming a way to write beautiful stories trough them.”
