Francesco Pergolesi : Stars


Francesco Pergolesi‘s series “Stars”  tells the intimate story of the photographer. It simply pays tribute to the women who raised him and helped him grow up. In each image, we find the memory of his mother and all of the women that surrounded me during my life. “They are all angels” says the Italian photographer, originally from Spoleto in the Umbria region. Produced by the Catherine Edelman Gallery, the film tells this story.

“A star is a heavenly body shining with its own light. I believe every child thinks of his/her mother in these terms; energy from which to draw love, solace, and protection from the vastness of the dark.
I grew up among women, listening to their stories, and imitating their wise gestures. Each of them welcomed me gently, helping me form my own identity. Stars is a “constellation” of women who are both ordinary and yet extraordinary. Each piece tells the story of a woman who has had a profound effect on me, as we enter their homes, and ponder the objects that inhabit their spaces. Each image is a theater of relationships, fragility, and ambitions, and the stars who have made me who I am.”
