Oneiric storytelling with Paris photographer Marta Bevacqua

Marta Bevacqua is an Italian photographer based in Paris, “lost in stories about dreams.”

Wild Minded came across Marta’s work through our client, independent fashion, photography and fine art publication,  jane. by the grey attic and couldn’t resist finding out more.


When did you first pick up a camera?

I was 16, and it happened by chance. I was browsing every day on websites of photography sharing, just because I loved looking at beautiful imagery. After that I just thought I could try, and I never stopped. At first it was just a game. It became my biggest passion (and my job) some years after.

Give us an overview of your profile as a photographer. 

I work mainly in fashion and beauty, but I love working on my personal artistic projects at the same time, as well as portraits.


How would you describe your aesthetic? 

Dreamy, oneiric and storytelling.

Who inspires you professionally and creatively? 

So many people and so many things. I can see I get inspired by the world and especially by nature. But even by books, music and movies. And of course, by many artists I follow.

How do you approach a new client brief?

I usually try to understand what the client wants, and just after how I can put something mine on the required job.


What is your creative process like?

The preparation is the longest part. Preparing a mood board, finding the location, having all the props, models, team etc. Shooting is the fastest part. And then post production.

Has your work taken to you many places?

Yes, but I would love if it could take me to more and more places 🙂


What has been your favourite location to shoot?

Svalbard. Even if I didn’t have a model…
