Stephanie Alcaino's photographic style embodies the spirit of her culturally diverse subjects.
An identical twin, Stephanie grew up in Sydney Australia, exposed to an eclectic cultural upbringing (with a German mother, Chilean father and Australian education). As a child she immersed herself in painting and drawing but discovered her love for photography whilst travelling with her family. Observing new places and interacting with strong cultures around the world served to challenge Stephanie to understand her own origins and excavate her unique identity.
This has evidently inspired how Stephanie approaches every subject that she photographs. Her belief is that in an origin lies a foundation to build on and gravity to draw people in. Stephanie’s aim is to help her clients communicate their identity and what makes them unique; sharing a culture and not just a product.
