Cristina Sinelli says about herself:
“I’m Cristina Sinelli, born in Milan in 1998. Photography was born as one of my passions and consolidated over time, becoming an important and fundamental part of my daily life. A year ago I made an important decision – that of enrolling in the European Institute of Design – a decisive step to make this passion, my job.
I collaborated with some companies in Milan, a city that offers a thousand and more possibilities, and already had some great first satisfaction. My photographs range from portraiture to street photography, thus linking to fashion and travel, the two areas that ignite my interest. The journey is that dimension that allows you to know, to see, to enrich yourself by putting you in contact with different and unique realities and photography is just that means that allowed me to collect those fragments of reality that otherwise would have been lost.”
About ‘Indian thoughts’:
India hits you deeply, in the most visceral and intimate part of you.
Hundreds of people move between one street and another, in a great clamor, among perfumes and smells that inebriate you. Photographing allowed me to get in touch with the people around me, talking to them or simply stealing and holding a gesture in one click, trapped in this way forever and frozen in time.
I visited Rajasthan, a unique world in itself compared to all the other places I have ever visited before, touching twelve cities in one month, comparing myself with completely new realities for me, made of joy, spirituality and curious faces in colorful robes.
The poverty you meet in these streets affects your heart, making you feel small and powerless, like a slap that takes you to a remote place of you that you did not even know existed. Varanasi, the holy city, is the spiritual place par excellence for the Indians, it transports you to an aura full of vibrations and energies that destabilize you and at the same time fill you with a magical joy I would say. The photographic work that I decided to collect, photographing both in analog and digital, wants to represent my vision and so the indelible memory that I wanted to preserve these people and these places, those colors that tell my India.
