It´s a long time I want to feature Emma aka @hypoison on Instagram.  Emma enjoyed many features on Italian press and is today one of the top followed Instagramers in Italy. I wanted to feature her, not only because of her long trip through Instagram but also for her projects, her life and her pure photography.


Her name is Emma Barreca…


Emma Hypoison InstagramEmma is a 31 years “old” living in North East Italy.
