Interview: Photographer Emma Pedemonte (Argentina)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I’m a mom, wife and a 24/7 photographer and entrepreneur. I live in El Bolsón, Patagonia Argentina. I’m curious person, I love challenges, I get bored easily. Because I was very poor when I was a child, I believe in sharing as a giveaway for my “lucky life”. I’ve worked hard for everything I have but, still think I’m blessed. I hate snobbism. I love art.
How and when did you get into photography?
I’ve always like photos, I like see old pictures, mine or anyone else’s. Photography show us past, show us how happy we were, show us our life, photography remind us what is important. I get into photography because I don’t know to paint, I was awful, so I thought (oh my innocence) it was easy to shoot, so it start as a hobby, but soon it became a career. That was 8 years ago.
