“For some time, I thought I’d settle for being a hobbyist. But then, everytime I thought about it, a dull ache would take over me. For me, photography means the cure for this pain of not settling for an ordinary life, it also means the outlet for images and scenes burning in my mind, asking to be released, expressed in some way. Some people write, others paint. I shoot.” – Larissa Felsen

I’m Larissa Felsen, 21, and a photographer trying to get my own place under the sun like many others. I’m currently based in São Paulo, Brazil, and all my photography knowledge comes from books, tutorials and long talks over tea with professional photographers. I worked as a photography assistant in some small studios and now I second shoot some weddings and events. However, my real passion lies in fashion and conceptual portraits.
