In the age of Instagram, taking pictures of one's self and sharing them has never been more prevalent. That being said, at the tender age of 20, Melania Brescia, is a skilled master. The young Spanish photographer from Malaga is enjoying a growing reputation as one of the more interesting-up-and-coming young artists for her intimate, softly-lit self-portrait shots that showcase the brunette in a series of stunning compositions, from homemade-feeling snaps to creative photo manipulation.

Now branching into fashion and portrait photography, Melania’s star is set to shine even brighter as she hones her creative craft. She has already shot for quite a few European magazines and her work has been exhibited in several gallery exhibitions. 

Recently we've discovered her Flickr account. Filled mainly with her creative self-portraits, the highly intimate works are full of life and emotion.  We're looking forward to seeing a lot more of her work in the future.
