Paula Rey Jiménez

Lensed by Maddalena Arcelloni

“My name is Paula Rey Jiménez, I am a professional photographer from Spain living in New York City. I am a photojournalist, and at the moment I work in the marketing department at The New York Film Academy. I like to take pictures, I like to dance, I love music, and I love food, all sorts of food. I enjoy spending time with my family, with my husband and my dog. When I was a child I had a car accident with my family. I was two years old, I don’t remember anything, only from stories that my parents have told me. After a long time in a coma and many many surgeries I woke up like a brand new little girl, I was ok, I just looked a bit different. I don’t think I could understand the feelings that I had at the time. My emotions about this experience have been changing during my entire life. I am a photojournalist, I take pictures, all I want to do is capture the moment, because I know that we will forget one day, but I will have all these pictures to remember. Being a woman is a big sentence, I don’t think I feel different than if I was a boy, I like to be sexy and fun, but I think that’s just as a human being. Once you accept yourself and you accept you as a woman is then that you feel very feminine.”

FANTAGIRL I AM THE WOMAN I AM is a project by Fantabody in collaboration with Vogue Italia.

The photographic project made in collaboration with Giustina Guerrieri, a young communication specialist who had always an interest in voicing real stories whilst exploring the boundaries of femininity.

An ode to the female body, regardless of its shape and skin colour. A research that promotes diversity as a starting point for addressing topics such as disability or immigration, which are approached with an inclusive, curious and prejudice-free attitude. Portrayed in her seductive uniqueness, every photographed subject has the opportunity to tell her story and reveal her nature with pride. An all-female collaboration where the protagonists are shot by selected female photographers and interviewed in the form of an intimate exchange of anecdotes and experiences.

The project is published monthly on vogue.it.
