My name is Veka Koestinger, my pronouns he/she/they. I was born in Oaxaca (Mexico). I lived in Spain and now I’m currently living in Paris. I’m 22 years old.
I’ve always been attracted by art, I believe it’s my passion. I’ve studied cinematography in school for three years and now i’m finishing my third year at The School of Image Gobelins. I’m studying photography and videography and I’ve started taking pictures on my own for about 7 years.
Photography is a very interesting art that allows me to express so many different emotions and beauties, it also allows me to create new worlds.
I’m mainly inspired by my twin sister, the human body, people, the cinema, the lights and the absurd. I sort of have two ways of taking pictures. One is through the obsessions I have, like water, chiaroscuros, birds flying, the moment and more. Theses pictures are taken in the moment, its like i’m taking notes and observing what’ s happening around me. Most of the time I observe, I love seeing people living and being. I find humans fascinating. The other way is by controlling everything that’s on the frame. I know what I want the picture to look like, and plan everything ahead. I love creating scenes, moments that questions the viewers and from which they can image what happed before or what’s going to happen after.
Through my pictures I want to show myself, my thoughts and weirdness.
