A Total Feminine Symbolism
From the first photo, I have understood that I was interested in portraits, above all feminine portraits.
Actually, looking to all my works until now, I can talk about a total experience inside women, their feelings, anxieties, relationships and gestures. I have always chosen feminine individuals trying to understand their secrets.
Looking to the entire archieve of photos, I can find out this central idea of introspection, like a big research of a common language that can go beyond our differences.
This selection wants to give this idea of strenght, fragility and gestures in an all womens’s way.
