Anna Positano – Intervista



Where are you from? Where do you live?

I was born and raised in Genoa, where I currently live. However I still

miss London – I lived there in 2009.

How old are you?

Over 29.

How do you pay your bills? Are you working as a professional photographer?

I have been working as a professional photographer since 2010, mainly for

architects and magazines, and I do independent research. I also teach as

an adjunct professor at the Faculty of Engineering in Genoa. To be honest,

all this is not turning me in a rich bitch, but I am positive about the


What cameras do you use?

Now I am really into a Pentax 6×7, heavy and tricky. Then I have my super

heavy Sinar F 4×5” view camera and (my father’s) Rollei SL66. I also use a

Nikon d80 – for now I cannot afford a digital medium format toy.

Any photographer or artist inspiring you?

Tough question! There are many! Above all, I love Luigi Ghirri, he is such

a stepfather for me. His delicacy – both in photographs and thoughts – was

extraordinary. I like Martin Parr, William Eggleston, Stephen Shore…

Well, now I have discovered Jake Stangle: very interesting imagery.

What/who do you enjoy to shoot the most?

Man-altered landscape and old fashioned interiors. I wish I could take

great portraits… I am working on this!

Do you believe in god?

No. I am more into Karma things, the way Earl (My Name is Earl) is.

What do you drink on a night out?

Good wine. A LARGE glass, please.

Do you like dancing?

I am crap at this, but I like it, especially if I do not take it seriously!

What’s your favorite first name?

When I was little I used to love the name Jennifer. Damn, it was in the

Eighties! I like Sara, now.

Are you a fashion addicted?

Not really. However I suffer from shoe-addiction.

What’s your favorite tv series?

Arrested Development.

Recommend us a book.

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

What’s the country of your dreams?

Undecided between Brazil and the UK…

Have you ever been to Iceland?

Unfortunately not.

What song would you choose for a slideshow of your work?

None, I guess. Maybe something by the Italian band port-royal.

Ask yourself a question. Tell me your answer (like Marzullo does)

Q: Why the hell can’t you keep your mouth shut, sometimes?

A: Oh, dear!
