Hello, my name is Anna. I am the mother of a 13-year-old Emilia for whom I want to change my life and hers. My passion for photography started with my first trip to London 8 years ago. However, my adventure began with the mobile phone which opened my eyes to my new passion. Every day I dreamed about my first professional camera. The only barrier I had after moving to Scotland was my language, I tried to learn it overnight, until one day I decided to try my hand at college. I am a stubborn person, I knew that I had to be able to do it and prove to myself and others that I have to be open to people and fight difficulties.
Thanks to my courage, I have met wonderful people. The most wonderful in my life who will remain in my heart forever. It is thanks to them that I am where I am. They have always supported me and helped me with my language barrier. Thanks to them, from the very beginning, when I decided 3 years ago to start with NQ and then HND, I was walking forward with my head held high. I never gave up hope for a better tomorrow. And it is thanks to these wonderful people that I am finishing HND with them today. It cost us a lot of hard work but we can all be proud of what we have achieved.
And it is this effort that we would like to present in our exhibition entitled “Life in Focus”. I chose a photojournalism for our exhibition. I would like to present in black and white colour how our lives have changed for almost 100 years. How our humanity has to deal with the difficulties of fate and what scenario is life itself writing to us.
