Minding the Minimal with @patriromero

"I’ve been a perfectionist for as long as I can remember," says Venezuela Instagrammer Patricia Romero (@patriromero). “When I was a little kid, I used to get angry when my two ponytails weren’t perfectly aligned, so wearing my hair down was always better.”

Today, Patricia’s obsession with details comes to life in her photos. “There are a lot of beautiful objects and moments in our ordinary life that deserve a bit of attention from us, and we overlook them,” she explains. “That is what I try to show in my pictures: that magic moment full of simplicity.”

An art director who also takes on various design projects with friends, Patricia has been living in Madrid for five years and finds that most of her shots are captured on her everyday commute. “My house is far away from everything, so I spend a lot of time in transit. I keep my eyes wide open all the time, trying to see simple things as if I had not seen them before. That way, I can find beauty in everything, every moment.”
