“I am interested in the preconceived idea of happiness and love and how insatiably we look for it.” In this interview, meet Bernardita Morello, nominated for Futures by PhotoEspaña in 2020.

Bernardita started with photography in her country, Argentina, where she studied and worked in fashion and press. She decided to move to Europe more than ten years ago for and because of photography. That made her pass through several schools as L’Ecole Natiolane de la Photographie d’Arles or BlankPaper.

Below, she talked to us about her career and inspirations:

Can you tell us a little bit about your inspirations? Which themes do you often work with?

I am interested in the preconceived idea of happiness and love and how insatiably we look for it, although sometimes this longing only makes us suffer great wounds. Photographing people that I hardly know and my own life, I try to get closer to the charm that is behind things as they are, because I believe that it is exactly there where the things are that we want so much and many times it escapes us chasing false illusions.

How do you see your relationship with the medium? How do you use photography to express your art?

I especially work on my vital experiences, I use photography in my daily life, it's a part of me.

Do you have any ongoing (or more recent) project that you would like to share with us?

I have another project about my family in Argentina, it's about our relationship, about my mom, about distance, about growing up in a lost town in Patagonia.

We have been facing a lot of challenges this year. How do you see this moment for art? Is it changing your practice?

In this hard year, the good thing is that I had more time to dedicate myself to my own projects. I don't think that this moment changed my practice really, but I had the opportunity to work deeply.

Can you share with us some of your plans for the future? Do you have any new project in mind?

I'm working on my next publication ROMA [featured in this page] and I have to thank the help I received from people at Futures.

What do you expect from this experience as a Futures talent?

Continue meeting people from the medium and knowing the different and rich works of colleagues.
