Artist Spotlight: Erica Stinziani, Connecticut USA

Although she is more well-known for her wedding photography, Erica Stinziani of Stella Blue Photography caught our eye from her colorful and whimsical images of Cassie Stephens, art teacher extraordinaire (Issue #26).  A peek through the Stella Blue portfolio shows that same attention to detail that made Cassie’s photo-shoot images so fun, with a focus on capturing those fleeting moments and turning them into memories to be treasured for a lifetime.

Artist Spotlight, Romain Thiery from Montpellier, France

Romain Thiery is a French professional photographer and pianist specializing in forgotten pianos in abandoned buildings in Europe.  His “Requiem for pianos” series is a proof of his attachment to piano and photography. The majority of his work focuses on the piano-sometimes depicted with keys missing, sometimes completely dismantled but always sitting imposingly. For this series, Thiery explored several countries including France, Italy, Belgium, Ukraine, Germany, and Poland. Through his photographs, the musical notes of these abandoned pianos resound again in these buildings in ruins, giving free rein to our imagination.
