The beauty of death. In this series we left a negative and sad image to do something radiant, strange and by implication, beautiful. Witch the search for a balance between life and death through the symbolism of this moment. Work did in Artistic collaboration with Amandine Vignon.
I interpreted the series Icons into tableaus featuring faceless people in calm and subdued settings. I emphasized one of the seven deadly sins, gluttony, in scenes depicting a lack of freedom, confinement, and the road one must follow to become an icon. The bags over the models’ heads represent sarcophaguses. These women are dead and only exist as icons. A beautiful, well-dressed woman inhabiting beautiful places has lost her identity through the role prescribed to her. She does not speak. She has never questioned the things she has learned. Will she ever be able to tear off the bag that holds her prisoner and denies her freedom? To come out of the darkness and into the light? Will she ever gain the freedom to think for herself, to compare, and to be confronted with ideas? Will she ever be able to put forth her own truth? Religion (not spirituality), social class, and politics put us into boxes. We all know people lacking of individuality, who are imprisoned in their sarcophaguses.
In our society balloons are often a reference for birthdays, a milestone for child who were brought into this world. Balloons represent those shared moments, made by emotions which became a part of my memories.
This series is a part of me with reference to people I have met who are close to me but also people or places which are unpleasant to me. I travel in footsteps of my past in France, Italy, Norway, Spain, USA. Each photo tells about a special day, moments filled with magic, unhappiness or just filled with the memory of someone. Events or meetings that took place several years ago or just few days ago. The past exists and develops itself every day.

WHITE & COLORS
I leave behind the streets of the capital and I find myself in a strange and quiet place where I float between dream and reality. I walk and sometimes the imprint of man reapers, the sign of human presence in the middle of nowhere. Today I continue to be fascinated at what I see, always in quest of these places that I interpret, the place that lives in me.
trinidad del mio interno
The battle against demons that hide in the corners of our mind. Find your own way through the maze given by our ancestors and parents. Break down the barriers with the help from our guardian angels (who open up the doors to your self-realization) to become the one who you wish to be in this world.
