romina ressia

 

Timeless female figures adorned with period costume and an array of modern accessories fill the frames of Romina's photographic pieces, which to date have won her various awards and a regular feature in Vogue Italia

The inspiration for these unusual portraits stems from Romina's fascination with the fashion photography which had always drawn her attention, but her work departs from the usual fare and enters a different space altogether.

There is an element of surrealism to her pictures which combine unique artefacts to present a personal reflection upon advancing technologies and cultural movements set against images of classical beauty in painterly-lit backgrounds.

Romina studied a variety of disciplines in her formative years, combining fashion photography with fine art in places such as The Theatre Colon.
