Although passionate about photography throughout her teenage years, young photographer Benedetta Ristori’s real love for the craft was born after she left high school. Without any formal training or professional equipment, Benedetta approaches the world of visual art in a spontaneous and individual way.
What are you up to now and what’s next for you?
How did you get into photography?
What opportunities has being shortlisted provided for you?
My experience after being shortlisted in the competition has been very positive. I had participated with a series of photographs just begun, and the fact that my project had been appreciated by the judges gave me another reason to take it forward.
I firmly believe that no one will ever come knocking on our door if we are not the first to propose and to make known our photographic work. Competitions and portfolio reviews are essential for beginners and for those looking for visibility and advice from experts and professionals.
Any advice to those thinking of entering?
