Cristina Altieri is a 30 year old Italian photographer based in Milan. She mainly works with analog cameras, finding this a more intimate way to approach photography. She likes to describe herself as divided between “the joy of youth and the strength of adulthood”. Her female subjects are sensual and candid at the same time. Cristina often captures them in the intimate space of their bedrooms. Her amazing ability to work with shadows and light make her photographs exude an aura of mystery and romance. Through them, Cristina tries to explore what’s hidden inside the human’s soul, its doubts and expectations. Look at one of her polaroids, and you may also find some of yours!
