Models in fields of flowers, on mountains, in the jungle—a strong sense of adventure permeates the fashion photography of Jvdas Berra, who is always on the lookout for new places to shoot. “My work environment is chaos, improvisation and freedom, a creative world where my team and I can express ideas,” he says. Berra’s interest in photography began as a hobby, and his energetic style emerged solely from the practice of creating moments that can never be replicated. “My passion and craziness are the techniques I use to take bright, colorful photographs,” he explains. “I love to open windows to worlds of fantasy and perfection.” A staunch believer in the power of art to change the world, Berra has featured socially conscious messages in some of his favorite projects—Autumn for the Elephants, one of his personal series, was sold in galleries to raise funds for animal foundations. “I like to believe that creating art will end war and violence,” he says. “Art is the answer.”
