🎞 Analog Photo Essay: What if god is a women

Convertini got her first film camera when she was only 15 years old. Ten years have passed since that day and her passion for photography only grew. She is very talented too. Some of you might have encountered Convertini on the inter-webs, since she is quite famous under the name ‘paeulini’ on Instagram.

It’s the first time in our short history that we are publishing a self portrait session and we asked Convertini what drives her to create it. “I started shooting self portraits because it gave me a sort of freedom I didn't find in a model. On your own you have so much time, so much space, poses and ideas. There are no boundaries, nothing is too weird”, thus Convertini.

Unexpectedly Convertini was inspired by Arianna Grande’s track ‘God is a woman’ for this specific series. “Maybe not the popstar you’d expect me to be a fan of, but she’s an amazing singer and most of all she is pushing boundaries in feminist context. This track has just the right amount of provoking thoughtfulness in it and it inspired me to create this series” (Convertini 2018).
