Portable: How did you get your start taking photos?

Laura Makabresku: It all started in high school. I was writing a lot of poems then, but words started to be a tough substance for my imagination. For a long time I couldn’t find any good tools to express myself, until my Lad gave me a camera. I remember the first photo which I took – it was a portrait of my Lad. I remember our first walk to a garden on the back of cemetery, the time when I wanted to take a photo of every moment when we were together – something like intimate, girly photo dairy. Today, when I look at these photos, I smell fading apple trees. Everything is so bright and clear, like in a Proust novel.
