My name is Ani, and I am 21 years old. I am from Tbilisi, Georgia. After graduating from school, I moved to Barcelona to study architecture. Currently, I am a 4th-year architecture student.

I was interested in capturing moments since childhood and started to take pictures with my film camera, which my boyfriend gifted me in 2020, the best gift I have ever received. The camera became part of my everyday life and gave me a lot of excitement and joy even on the hardest days. Living on the coast is the biggest inspiration for me-colors, nature, people, everything feels special on the coast.

The amazing thing about photography is that I can show different moments, people and places in a way that I see them, after each shot I discover something new and realize that beauty can be seen in every single detail. I want my pictures to provoke the feeling of peacefulness and happiness in people. The fact that I am studying architecture changed the way I perceive the world. In architecture, as well as in photography, you need to be patient and always seek aesthetic perfection. I find photography the best tool to show people what the world is like from my point of view.

One of the reasons to shoot with the film is that mostly you have only one chance to push the shutter, and you need to put the whole effort into that image. The moment of surprise when you get your scans is also incomparable. The colors, depth, contrast, and lifefulness in the film are what make me hold to it, even if it gets harder every year to be a film photographer, because of the industry. I hope to study photography professionally in the future and make it a bigger part of my career and life.
