DIRTY: HOW DID YOU ARRIVE AT AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AS A STYLE / SUBJECT?

DANIELA URZI: I always travel because of work, being in a plane became part of my life. And I’m a curious person. I love to look out the window and see all the beautiful landscaping, so many years ago I began taking pictures on the plane.

 

D: WHAT’S ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE PLACES THAT YOU’VE SHOT FROM THE AIR?

DU: I love the Bahamas from above the color of the Caribbean water is unlike anything.

 

D: WHAT DO YOU SHOOT WITH?

DU: Right now with a Nikon D90. But some of the pictures of the book are from a pocket camera I had, and before that pocket with film… that’s the nice thing of the book is that they are pictures from all different times of my life.

 

D: DO YOU WORK IN ANY OTHER MEDIUMS OTHER THAN PHOTOGRAPHY?

DU: I am also a painter.  I paint on very large canvases

 

 

D: HOW DOES YOUR CULTURE/UPBRINGING INFLUENCE YOUR WORK?

DU: I was born and raised in a small town outside of Buenos Aires, very humble. I think that’s what is keeping me with my feet in the ground and to have the appreciation of what is surrounding me all the time.

 

D: WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST MEMORY OF BEING PHOTOGRAPHED?

DU: The first time a photographer took pictures of me, I was 16 years old . I was nervous and my grand mother came to the shoot…I knew that it was the beginning of a new destiny for me.

 

D: IS ANYONE ELSE IN YOUR FAMILY INVOLVED IN THE ARTS?

DU: My father is a painter & he makes really nice art work… that’s why I like to paint too, I think.

 

D: HOW DID YOU CELEBRATE AFTER YOUR FIRST BIG MODELING JOB?

DU: My first big modeling job was YSL, in Paris (perfume), this happened on my first month being in Paris, so I didnt know many people to celebrate with…

 

 

D: WHAT WAS THE FIRST CONCERT YOU EVER WENT TO?

DU: Madonna in Las Vegas, 4 years ago. It was amazing.

 

D: WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS?

DU: It’s hard to say, but my dream is to have success with the photography and have a beautiful family.

 

D: WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO PUBLISH A BOOK?

DU: Thanks to my friend and agent Carlos Paz who believed it to be something more than a personal project. That my idea wasn’t so crazy… he helped me find a publisher and has guided me through the whole process… and I will be thankful always for that.

 

D: WHEN DOES YOUR BOOK COME OUT?

DU: In September — Can’t wait!
