Rose Claw was born and lives in northern Italy, but has a special relationship to the UK and London. She gets bored very easily so she always needs something new and is fond of change. Go through her visual diary.
How did you start taking pictures?
Photography has always been a natural act, because I’m a visual thinker. I understand, memorize and even count things like they were pictures. It has something to do with the fact I’m left-handed, apparently, but I started taking pictures on a regular basis when I got my flickr account, back in 2008.
What kind of things inspire you?
Connections. Interactions. UK. Woods. The nothingness. The supernatural. Death. Animals. The ’70s. The unexpected. The ordinary, and of course — light .
Does your photography work as some kind of diary for you?
Definitely. It’s a sort of a scrapbook, except I write through 35 mm film. (And analog photography is such a treat. Film kinda takes on a life of its own, you can’t completely control it – and it feels good). I need to remember though images, life-stills, and then I like to show them to other people, to make them see what I see
