Meet Cristina Venedict
I make photography with my soul, capturing different moments of my life. I see the world differently through the lens of my camera; it has taught me to notice beauty when sadness surrounds me.
I’ve always been fascinated by people. I like looking at them, studying their characteristics, their reactions, and getting to know their stories. I believe each human being is unique, beautiful, and unpredictable.
I’ve won many photography competitions, including the National Award 2016 Sony World Photography Awards, PWP’s 37th Anniversary International, Shoot The Face International Portrait Photography Award, TZIPAC, Px3, IPA, 35PHOTO award, and more.
My photographs have been exhibited in places such as London, Krakow, Dublin, Vermont, New York, Vienna, Cairo, Rome, Switzerland, Athens, Moscow, and France (Saint Gilles Croix de Vie).
My works have appeared in various publications and websites including Adore Chroma Magazine, Silvershotz Magazine, Professional Photographer Magazine Uk, PH Magazine, Worbz, Blur Magazine, Camera Obscura Journal, DPI Magazine, Tribe Magazine, Musse Magazine, Foto4all, CHIP Foto Video, Photo Magazine, Fine Art Photo Magazine, and Lookslikefilm.
