It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive.

Travel & Destination Photographer in Italy

Ciao! My name is Anna!

I come from Poland but since 2020 I’m based in Genoa, Italy. The curiosity of the world always pushes me to go ahead. I enhance my energy with a sense of humor and good coffee. Sensitive logic supporter. Traveler following loved ones.

Photography for me is like painting with watercolors – full of light, intuitive, irreversible. At the same time, it requires patience and reflex in capturing the right moment. And the end result always has a hint of nostalgia – longing for the captured memory. But images often say more than words .

Why Lacunna?

I have always been interested in the etymology of words. I love to discover links between different languages. History of the word lacunna has started from Latin lacus, which means lake, lagoon. I often dream about water, which always shows my inner state. Clear and calm when I feel peaceful, turbulent and murky when something is bothering me.

The word was imported mainly by Romance languages. What is more, it acquired additional meanings blank in text, lack, free space. I am searching for such blanks to bring out their hidden beauty.

And as befits a destination photographer in Italy, it could not do without a reference to Bella Italia. La cuna in Italian means place of birth.
