Today we’d like to introduce you to Fareena Valliani- Viglianco.
Fareena, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
Anything you do in life, there is a purpose behind it. We are all in search of our “why.” I have always been a wandering human. Just as everyone, I had to find my purpose “what is my why.” I fell in love with photography in high school; I continued it in college as a hobby.
However, as reality hit and typical 9-5 came around, I wasn’t happy. I always found my self traveling and taking pictures of landscapes (which I’ll never give up) or taking pictures of athletes and, but that wasn’t it for me. I wanted more I realized that after I got my first wedding which I was really hesitant about I found my “why” I wanted intimate/ raw moments. I also wanted to travel for my couples, so this year I decided to be elopement based.
The purpose is serve your couples; the purpose is to grow as a person & also, the purpose is to love what you do and pure your soul in it. I want to capture intimate love/ raw moments; I want to capture LGBT based couple & interracial based couple. I want it all.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My work is based off earthy, rustic, warm colors. I want to share raw, earthy moments, passion, & honest moments. I despise posing my couples I personally give them things to do. The idea is to serve your couples I usually get to know them prior and built a connection with them, so when they do book me, they have full confidence in me. What truly inspires me is their stories how they met, who kissed who first, who talked to who first. Us as humans need that reminder once they spill the beans I promise you that’s when the magic happens. My god! It’s beautiful. You can see it in their eyes, the way they kiss and touch each other.
I also want people to know that their art matters put your soul into it.
Artists face many challenges, but what do you feel is the most pressing among them?
Everything you do you have to work hard towards it. Art is sadly lost.. people tend to follow trends and pick the latest and greatest. Also, The biggest challenge for any artist is marketing their work correctly and creating their brand. I personally feel like magazine like yours are good for hidden gems.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
