“Lucrezia Dipasquale is a 17 year-old freelance photographer and artistic director. As a half-Nicaraguan, half-Italian, first-generation American, Lucrezia aims to empower girls, women, and those of color through her artistic photography. Girls in our society are conditioned to be polite and quiet; in this specific portrait photo-series, "Aurora," Lucrezia shines a light, literally and figuratively, on the unedited faces and bodies and the raw emotions of real girls and how beautiful they are.
