Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Silvia Bandera, I’m from Milan and currently I’m what I can call an undergoing training art student. In fact, I’m trying to grow in all the visual arts fields by modeling, acting and by studying at the Brera Art Academy of Milan. I like to stand both behind and in front of the camera and my whole life basically revolves around art in all its forms.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I think I would definitely get rid of my crazy anxiety for almost everything, that’s something that often makes me feel really stupid and complicates things. I also would like not to be totally clumsy in sports!
How did you start modeling?
I started by accident. About 3 years ago a guy asked me to pose for him, I was so awkward! Since then more and more people started to being interested in having me as a subject, and I started to enjoy it, and to learn something about it each time.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I think that “model” is a way too broad concept for answering to it. There are several kinds of models. Generally speaking, I can say it is more challenging than it can seem, and it can be an art form.
What is your beauty regimen?
My beauty regimen is definitely doing what I love every single day, and sharing that with the people I love.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I think that would be a bit pretentious for me to think about it!! I don’t know, maybe the passion I put in what I do?
What are your plans for the future?
I only can think about my nearest future, and for that I think I’ll simply keep on what I’m studying to grow more and more, and make as much various experiences as possible.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Nice question. Maybe so far, my favorite experience is the Amaro Montenegro short film. The clip is a real piece of art, I loved the role and it was amazing to see my face on the big screen of the cinema!
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Be sure of what your qualities are and try to understand on what you can aim for. Than, be determined on that! And always love yourself before anything else. Don’t waste yourself!
What do you think of the magazine?
A really great and interesting platform for sharing one of the best things in the world, that’s photography!!
