Excited to see this new book cover “Lumea în flăcări” by Siri Hustvedtin Romania, represented by the awesome Trevillion Images and even more excited to find out what this novel is about.

I had to use google translator to get this book description:
“Siri Hustvedt tells the story of artist Harriet “Harry” Burden, who, after years of being ignored by critics and art collectors, causes a real scandal on the New York art scene when she persuades three young male artists to launch her creations under their own signature as a socio-philosophical experiment. However, when his authorial masks come to enjoy success and fame, and Harry goes out on the ramp to claim his work, things do not go as expected.”

So isn’t this a very nice coincidence? My image “The mask you wear” book cover of a novel that talks about a female artist. Nice 🙂

By the way, why do you think there’s a gender gap in the art world?
Why are female artists still valued less?
Why are they underrepresented?

Would love to hear your opinion!

Spread joy

Spread joy - 2022 - Photography - Paper

I free myself from ego and I find joy.
Joy of being who I am, joy of feeling blessed with what I have, joy of living each moment to the fullest.

I let go of worries, fears and indecisions and find peace, happiness and love.

I give full attention to the present moment without resistance and without expectations and life begins to flow with joy and ease.

Life is simple when time disappears.

Everything is just as it is, beautiful, perfect, complete and whole.

Spread joy.

Be your own witness

Alessandra Favetto - Fine art self portrait photographer

We all want to be liked. We all look for outside approval.

Whether it’s our family, our friends, our spouse, our followers or our boss, at some point we are looking for their approval.

I think it all starts at an early age.
I remember how happy I was when coming back home from school with a drawing I made for my parents, they praised me as if I was Leonardo da Vinci (they were experts in lying).

Obviously this is what parents normally do but sometimes they just over do it. As a result you grow up always looking for this outside approval, just to fit in right but compromising your own integrity, self-esteem and values.

So at some point you need the courage to stand up for your own ideas, dreams and actions, although you might not find any ally to support you.

That’s when you grow up. That’s when you learn to rely on yourself no matter what other people say or think.

At that point something magic happens: whatever you do, you enjoy it and fulfills you. And guess what? You improve your performance, you get better and start believing in a bigger and higher purpose.

You no longer need external validation to know how much you’re worth and how much you’re loved.

You just enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold.

“If you are ever tempted to look for outside approval, realize that you have compromised your integrity. If you need a witness, be your own.”

Fine art photography and jewelry. I wouldn’t have thought about this couple but YES it’s the perfect match!

I’m so honored and grateful to be part of this amazing jewelry catalogue for Gadebusch, a well known jewelry store in Cologne with a tradition of over 175 years.

Two of my images, “Waiting for the red moon” and “In-carnation“, were licensed for this project and I absolutely love how fine art photography and jewelry connect so well.
The catalogue is really beautifully printed and elegantly organized.
