How do you wake up in the morning?

Normally I get up around 9am, I have egg whites for breakfast and then I do a little workout, but today it was a Sunday morning and I woke up in my boyfriend’s bed. We went out last night so I was feeling kind of hungry and thirsty at 11am when I woke up. Like every summer day in Barcelona it was so hot that you can’t sleep. i didn’t have anything for breakfast, in fact I didn’t get out of bed until 2pm.

What do you look forward to each day?

Every day is like a challenge. I try to do what I’m supposed to do, for me, being positive and kind is important. I do believe in karma so I try to make things right.

What made you pick up photography?

When I was twelve, I was feeling kind of lonely at home and school so I tried to find new friends on the internet. I discovered few artists and what I saw in their pictures or drawings was basically beauty and I tried my best to take pictures similar to theirs. It was a surprise when I uploaded my pictures in online communities and found that people liked my work. That was very encouraging for me.

Who or what are your biggest influences?

I’m influenced by 90’s and it’s street culture. As I studied arts and design I’m influenced by art in general. I’m also influenced by daily life, real moments and feelings.

If you could photograph any person in the world, who would it be?

It would probably be some 90’s rapper. I love 90’s and I consider hip hop the best thing on earth so meeting and photographing a 90’s rapper is a dream. Taking pictures of Tupac or Big Daddy Kane would be awesome. I would also enjoy photographing Jean Michel Basquiat, my favorite artist of all time.

How would you describe your personal style?

Minimalistic. I show what I see, it’s kind of documenting life the way I see it. I look for the beauty. Even If shoot portraits, a fashion editorial, extreme sports or a wedding, I believe every single thing or moment in this Universe has something beautiful.

What are your dreams?

Agnes Essonti  Visual Artist/Photographer/Adventurer London/Barcelona

I dream of the day I feel completely happy and that involves my family and close friends being happy with their lives too. I really want to be a great photographer or artist. I’m open to what will come to my life, so even if I don’t end up being a famous photographer I want my ideas to pay my fees.

Do you cook?

Yes, of course. I love cooking and I love eating. I do spend a lot of time cooking nice food because I think good food makes people happy.

Name 3 things that make you euphorically happy?

Eating nice food, dancing and being successful in my work.

What's next for you?

I’m moving to London in two weeks. I’m really excited about it and I will try to grow as a photographer as much as I can.
