"The work of Bruna Kazinoti generally takes two directions. On the one hand it exists of portraits taken of suburban youth. She approaches the subjects (mostly young guys) with a bit of a distance, it seems. But in such romantic, dreamlike way the viewer isn’t preoccupied in any way and accepts the image spontaneously. Bruna plays with the poses of her models and sometimes let them act with symbols and gestures that are typical expressions made by subcultures of the up to date suburbia. There’s little distraction to accompany the portraits; empty walls, a mattress or sometimes a well chosen prop strengthens the feeling we are looking at desolate angels. On the other hand Bruna Kazinoti is overwhelmed by nature and its beauty. She documents this daily, on a hunt to capture it all. She always tries to bring these two elements together. Sometimes literarily; double printing portraits and nature photography’s. Other times she creates diptychs; combinations of portrait and nature… The work of Bruna Kazinoti is an ongoing project."

4. What subjects do you most enjoy capturing?I mostly enjoy taking photos of street boys. I’m very interested and fascinated by their behaviour and attitude. I just love their way of being- the way they walk, talk, communicate and act. That said it could not be without also taking nature photos, of the sea, the woods, and Croatian countryside.
