STEFANIE NEVES at VIRTUE – an all female creative exhibit

Meet Stefanie Neves.

A photographer capturing the connection between the person and the camera as she is inspired by the natural behaviour of her models. It would seem that Stefanie reveals the character of the individuals through her images more often than forging one of her own. Her connection to the lenses will be on show next along side many other talented female artists at VIRTUE – a female creative exhibit on September 13 at Studio 1176.

Learn more about Stefanie Neves in our interview below.

What inspires you to create?
“Small nuances and tender moments are what I pay attention to when people watching- these are also things I aim to bring out in my photos as well.

I love nervous habits, disconnection and small subtleties; the things people don’t realize they’re doing.

It’s cliche to say but those moments in between moments is what gives me inspiration.”

How do you think creative women are perceived in the industry?

“I think women still have a long way to go, for any industry really, but it’s really great to see how far women have come.

It’s also always great seeing women come together and celebrate each other as I don’t think it happens nearly as much as it should!”

How do you perceive feminism?

“I’ve learnt a lot about feminism in the past couple of years and am very proud to consider myself a feminist.

Feminism to me is about equality, empowerment, and respect for women.

This past year alone has felt progressive, not only towards educating more people on feminism and gender equality but on the lgtbq* front as well, though there is still so much more to learn. ”

Where do you wish to take your art in the future?

“I’m more or less just shooting and working a few small projects; right now I don’t know what the future holds for me but I’m excited (and a little anxious) to let everything play out and see what happens.”
