Francesca Pradella is a freelance photographer, videographer and storyteller based in Italy but available worldwide.
About the reason behind the name, 10photography:
“ I was not a fan of putting my name under my photos because I felt it might somehow influence the viewer. So I picked a number, because that’s the only universal language we share as human beings. No need to translate. 10 because I was born on April 10th; it is an ” happy number ” ( math definition); it’s the atomic number of Neon and I love that type of light; Pitagora thought it was the perfect number; in italian schools, it was the best grade You could get; it’s the number of spacetime dimensions in some superstring theories. “
How everything started:
” The first book I got in my life was an animal encyclopedia. My grandfather Enrico , who was a vet, gave it to me when I was a child. I fell in love with those beautiful illustrations and I remember spending days to learn their latin names. And I grew up reading Jack London, Rudyard Kipling, Konrad Lorenz . “
Wildlife photography as her biggest passion, she established herself in her country by shooting weddings , newborns and family portraits.
She’s also a published photographer for national and international press, including Profilo Donna Magazine and ELLE Brides .
As a credited photographer for the International Venice Film Festival, Rome CineFest, Cannes Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival NY, she attends red carpets and events shooting celebrities too.
” I love reportage. I cannot interfere. But when it comes to editing, sometimes my mind goes back to my childhood, when drawing was my biggest love and the pictures get into a mixed-media direction, with an almost- painting vibe .”
Traveling the world, she dreams about the perfect picture:
” … the one I hope doesn’t exist, so I can keep going on with my camera, until my bones allow me to do so “.
About the trademark in her photography, she has no doubt :
“ Empathy is the best lens. The only one truly needed in your camera bag.”
