A journey into the works of LAVINIA CERNAU

As a self-taught photographer, I can say my focus is travel and lifestyle documentary but in a very intuitive, personal way.

I more often than not shoot on instinct and as it turns out my intuitive images happen to be my best work, they say.

What drives me to capture a particular moment is the juxtaposition of light and shade and the feeling that emerges. I’m mostly drawn to that time of day when the sun quietly goes to sleep. I think it creates a magical atmosphere, a time when anything is possible. Right now I’m in a period when I’m very much into capturing the evocative pace of summer when it’s all about sensuality, skin and sea.

I guess the best way to describe my approach is that I document feelings or at least that’s how I’d like my photography to be remembered.
