Lilia Carlone
Photographer / Filmmaker

I was born in 1991 in a city that I never saw again, I grew up in the backstage of theaters and on the Volvo backseat of my mother. When the age allows me to take decisions I asked my mother to buy me a reflex digital camera.

Years go by and my passion for image and moving image grew with me. When I was 19 years old I started to do a music video and short film for fun, it’s 5 years by now that I work as video/film maker. This brings me to reject a digital still image, known as well as photography, I wanted to research something pure and deeper than that.

Film photography has been able to make me feel really connected with my photography, I feel pure and sheer when I show my pictures because I can’t, and I won’t hide anything.

I think it’s difficult for me to talk about proper work, I’m still studying and experimenting my style and my personal taste. I can say for sure that translating my emotion into visual experience (still or moving) and be able to being understood it’s the most I can ask for now. The goal is to work as director of photography, creating a slow dance between the camera and the actors on a colorful stage.

Essential, art has transversals roles in my work, it can be inspired from classical art to a personal point of view, I take inspiration from photographers, directors, literature and everything that can be motivational for me.

Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
