If you see glance amazing, would you just walk off and not investigate, or would you take a closer look? Well that’s what happened when we stumbled across Vanessa Granda’s work. We simply couldn’t pass by and not explore her website or find out more about the lady behind the photos.
In this interview, we speak to Vanessa about her photography, who she would love to work with and what tips she has for aspiring photographers out there. Take a look!
V: Checks Twitter, grabs a bacon, egg & cheese bagel from a bodega, puts on a good playlist (right now it’s a tropical electric vibe), pulls out a notebook and jots down cool photoshoot ideas, grabs a drink with friends, goes home, puts on moisturizer, starts over.
V: I stick to a canon mark III for the most part but sometimes it’s too heavy, so I’ll swap it out for a lightweight polaroid camera.
I’ll usually throw all the images into photoshop and then adjust the saturation, I like to exaggerate the colors.
V: #SOILANDSOLE is my probably my favorite project. It’s an ongoing personal series where I photograph sneakers and plants. It stemmed from my fascination with mixing something masculine and feminine.
V: I’d love to photograph Ruth Bell or Bella Hadid, just look at them! My dream would be to watch/work with Mert & Marcus, they have an aesthetic that I really gravitate to, it’s overly saturated, playful and strange.
V: Carry extra batteries
