Come with us! It all started when a friend asked me to join a group of trail runners that were having a hut-to-hut vacation week in the Dolomites. Being an experienced trail runner AND a passionate photographer I was immediately enthusiastic about the idea. I was expected to join the group and run with them […]
About Mia Battaglia
"My name is Mia Battaglia, born 1962 (I’ll leave the maths to you...) Should you know more about me, you’d probably think at the Latin say “Nomen Omen”: in English, my name would be “My Battle”, and it has been exactly that: a wonderful, taff, passionate and neverending battle: this is what, even in 2020, a transgender person life usually is. I’ve also always been practicing a lot of sports, the most relevant (25 years) being marathons and ultra trail-running races. And I recently added mountain e-biking to my usual activities (just to spare a bit my knees). That’s why, just to survive, I also practice Iyengar Yoga (since more than 20 years now). My work life is all about a very little software development company which I own, together with a partner. Photography has always been present in my life: passionate since the beginning (I received my first camera when I was eight) in the years I started developing my personal taste, and enjoyed the chance to use photography to reproduce the reality as I feel it, rather than how I see it. In particular, I love when I can bring life to shades, and not only to light. Maybe this is something connected to the fact that, for about half of my life, I wasn’t able to show what I really was: I was just leaving there, in the shade... Sometimes people say that my pictures are more paintings than photographs, and this is something I personally take as a compliment, probably because half of my family was made of artists, of any kind: painters, sculptors, musicians... and sometimes all this together. Together with Ugo Baldasarre, I'm administrator of the Micro 4/3 Italia Facebook Group."
