SARI BRACCO INTERVIEW
Sari Babebibobu is a freelance photographer from Italy, who, like previous interviewee Lindsey DeWitt, explores the cosmic relationship between self-portrait and ambient overlays. However, Sari often delves into darker territory.
Check out her work here:
Matthew Sherling: What draws you to photography?
Sari Babebibobu: Stories, moods, nightmares, anxiety, morbidity or fears are my strongest attractions and all I can do is try to immortalize this reality with a series of shots or a single portrait.
MS: Yes, I think of that notion a lot—immortalizing through art.
How long have you been into photography and do you experiment with any other mediums?
SB: My devotion to the images comes from my father; my first experiments bring me back to six years ago and now I can no longer live without them.
MS: Can you elaborate on the images coming from your father? Was he an artist?
SB: My father is a lover of beauty and emotion of any art.
I remember evenings spent with him at work, hours spent in museums in Paris, film slides of his travels, his love for classical music and history books.
But mostly the passion and wonder on his face for any new discovery.
MS: Can you tell us about where you live?
SB: I was born in a small country outside the big cities; now I live in Turin, but I will not live here forever. Paris, Stockholm, Reykjavik….
MS: Cool! Does music ever inspire your art? Who have you been listening to lately?
SB: For sure, music has always inspired my photography and an especial component of my whole life. What’s more, some of my work s been used as cover images by artists, so I guess this is the field I belong to.
These are my recent musical plays

In spite of everything, I’m still looking for new exciting stuff, something bigger!

MS: Nice! How do you see the internet affecting the world // art?
SB: For sure, the Internet is a good source of contacts, exchanges and possibility. In spite of this, often enough it is still a container of too many things that are sold as art, but rather I’d call this simple skills used with good method and technique but poor contents.
After all, I ask myself: today what art is really art?
MS: (laughs) Well after all, what is really art?
SB: Art is all that still has the ability to surprise me and tell me something great…it comes inside my heart and gives me energy, thoughts and creativity.
