About FINE SEAS

Young Monaco-based yachting entrepreneur. Passionate about the sea and yachts, she explores sea-surface appearances and exterior lines and lights of famous mega yachts, ever anchored or cruising Monaco coast at night. She does not position herself as a photographer, but more as an author of two photo-series, which reveal the beauty of the sea and abstract mood of the yachts. Using long exposures and intentional camera/lens movements, she practice a new type of photography, where sensual dancing plays an important role to reach the perfect balance between the camera, the human, the environment and the photo-object.
